"Objects are crafted from varied material. From wood and stone, glass, metal and fiber, they are carved, constructed and etched, molded and woven. Families and lives, too, are formed from disparate matter. We create from sinews and blood, muscles and bone, of course, but as well from a wellspring of hope and love and dreams and the annealing strength of disappointment, loss and pain.
It was from these we knit our family."
