Being of Jewish decent, as Jesus Christ was, I somehow always thought of him looking darker and with dark curly or bushy hair, like my Dad.
This spoke to me when I saw it. Evoking the emotions I feel when holding my own babies. I imagine how Joseph and Mary felt. Big eyes looking up into yours, thinking you are the entire world when in reality, it is mutual. Deep, heavy snuggly baby cuddled sweetly in your arms. Billions of kisses. Your love multiples infinity by the second.
This is about the size of my hand. Still a great size for a small space, missionary, neighbor gift or for the Nativity collector you love.
Having had a rainbow baby myself, I also thought of this as that first moment getting to hold my son after my first loss. To all the parents out there who have lost a child of any age, I know that Child will ALWAYS be your baby and you will get to see them again someday in an eternal and loving heaven.
