I went to Deseret Book today to try to find something I could send C for his birthday next month. I saw this picture on the wall and instantly loved it!! I guess you could say it spoke to me.
Anyway, after going up and down each aisle I found a smaller one. On the plastic wrap over it, it said to turn it over for the story behind the painting. I was crying in the aisle as I read it. One of the little boys in the picture was an orphan and recognized "Jesus". He asked him if his parents were okay and if he had seen them? I knew instantly that I wanted to get it for C. I walked back over to the large painting on the wall and there was a sale sticker on it. That's when I knew that I would be walking out of the store with one for me as well.

I love it!!
