So this cake topper has quite a story with it.  Besides being crafted from Wed at 10pm to Sat at 1pm (wow to me cause that includes sleeping, caring for family and a four hour drive.... oh and fixing the wedding cake but that's another story), this is a reminder to all about how important family can be and no matter what, good things will happen. 

Two weeks ago, I got a phone call from my husband's birth father.  My DH was adopted at age 4 with no real information about his birth family other than he had a sister and they were taken away from an abusive home.  It was lucky for everyone that I had taken that call, when my DH heard about it, he was not interested in talking to him at all.  After me playing mediator for a few hours, he finally talked to his sister (his dad and half sister had found her six months earlier).   With an amazing story about what had happen to the dad; divorced from his crazy wife (the person who did loose the kids) and in the military, he was not allowed to have his kids (it was the seventies and there were problems in some of the systems).  Anyway, when his kids were "adults", he started looking for them.  Hired detectives, searched the internet when it came out, reached out with newspaper ads.... but anyway, when the sister was found, she had more information about where they had gone in the system that lead them to where he was living and they found him thru yearbook.  So, the next weekend, we met his sister for the first time in forty years as well as her daughter who was getting married the following weekend.  My husband wasn't sure he wanted to go up and meet his dad yet but after myself, his newly found sister and his newly found niece (bride to be) convinced him to go.  That was Tuesday and since we were now going, his sister had asked me to make the cake topper. 

Onto the picture!

Hope you enjoyed
