Meet the Johnstons!!




We are lucky enough to be able to help another family bring home their child. Meet the Johnston family!!



This is Josh and Jenni at the ceremony where Josh received his purple heart.

Don't they just look like awesome people?  They are. I am so excited to be able to be a small part of their miracle!

This is the sweet girl whose life you could change-

A NOTE ABOUT THE ORNAMENTS:

The team here at Positivity had a very different vision for these ornaments.  My husband, an artist, wanted them PERFECT. He wanted a stencil so they would all be just alike, have neat edges and very straight lines.  In my mind they were each a little different, rough around the edges, not perfectly symmetrical, but still BEAUTIFUL.  The kids we are reaching with Positivity are individuals.  These kids may be seen as a little rough around the edges.  But they are so beautiful and so deserving.  They are viewed as "imperfect", but they are perfect just the way they are.  And adoption is messy.  It isn't always straight lines and it looks different for every family.  

Guess who won?  Each of these ornaments is hand painted without a stencil or a pattern.  They are straight from our heart to yours.  Like the children they will help to bring home, they are not cookie cutter, but they are just as they are supposed to be.  We hope you love them and that they bring another level of meaning and joy to your Christmas!

  1. Hi,
    Can you please explain the difference between the sparkle, matte and shiny. I can't tell from the picture.
    Thank you!
