The Legend of the Dreamcatcher

Native Americans of the Great Plains believe the air is filled with both good and bad dreams. Historically, dreamcatchers were hung in the teepee or lodge, and at the head of a baby's cradle. According to legend, the good dreams pass through the center hole of the weave and into the sleeping person. The bad dreams are caught in the web and perish in the light of dawn.

The dreamcatcher means a lot to Amy. She has a large tatoo on her ankle to remind her that she is originally from Santa Fe. She hasn't searched for her birthmom, but so many of her struggles are related to the adoption. I pray some day she will come to terms with it and I'm thankful that she has a symbol that will connect her to her birthplace.
