Tattooed baby

In IOP*, we have met amazing families, incredible parents, troubled teens and broken souls who have found their way back from the brink of addiction. Have I mentioned the word, "humble"? Yep, being involved with addicted teens brings that word into the limelight. In fact, healing usually cannot begin until the addict brings themselves to the place where they are humbled, and can ask for help. It is the first of many, many steps on the long road to recovery.

Among the many new friends we have made is the most adorable young couple, C+J, who were addicted teens, and are now sober, and recently married, now having their first beautiful baby together. Both share the love of tattoos, having many beautiful ones all over the body... and so how could I not... help the baby to have a few tattoos too?

Tattooed baby... needle felted tattoos... cozy-wooly-lovie warmth.... I am a smitten kitten....

C+J, with all the love in the world to you and your sweet son making his way into the world very soon... I know you will be the best parents, and will know what you need to do and NOT do in order to raise your baby boy to be the best he can be. You come with an amazing arsenal of tools in your belts. Know I am here to lend a hand if you ever need it. xxoo!

That is so thoughtful of you to make a little tattooed jacket for the baby boy. I know his parents will charish this and think of you when the boy wears it.
