50 years ago at the age of 16-years-old, I gave birth to a baby boy whom I placed for adoption. I was never allowed to see or touch my son. For 50 years, I searched for him and watched door after door close because it was a closed adoption and the maternity home had burned to the ground. It was impossible for me to find my son. On February 2, 2017, my world turned upside down when I got a text message saying, "Mom, this is Patrick your son. I heard you have been looking for me." The beautiful Vita pendant signifies my son, who was lost but by God's grace, has been found. My Vita pendant will have an emerald birthstone to signify the month of his birth. I will wear this pendant every day, telling anyone who asks about it, my answered prayer that I had prayed for 50 years. - Janice
I bought the Vita pendant at the Pro-Life Women's Conference in Dallas last weekend, June 25-26. It's SO much more beautiful than pictured. I get so many compliments and comments on it. To me it expresses waiting. A child waiting in the womb to develop and be born. How I am waiting on God for the prayers for my children to be answered. In His time, the answers will be "born". - Patti Smith, Pro-Life speaker, Save the 1
Last week I was at a meeting where I sat beside an older woman. She asked about my necklace. I was wearing the Vita pendant. We began talking about it and she told me about her daughter's death 13 years earlier. She told me how she still could not go through her daughter's things. I volunteered to come help her when she was ready. Vita was the catalyst for healing for this woman. Thank you Cindy for following where God has lead you and bringing Vita to the world. Through Vita, people's lives can be changed. - Valerie Weeks
I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Vita necklace! - Keri O.
I still have not taken my necklace off since the March for Life on January 18th! I love it so much. It reminds me of my lost babies, my living son, and of course you! - Donna F
On December 17,1985, my parents welcomed me into their home. I was 2 months old and they were thrilled to be able to adopt me. My birthmother had chosen life. I am proud to wear my Vita pendant because it reminds me of the love my Mom and Dad felt as they became my parents, of the love my birth-mom felt as she placed me in their arms, and of the love I feel for my own daughter. The joy of new life should never be underestimated. It is a powerful gift! - Christina Howard Harman
What a very special gift you gave me yesterday. In many ways it has completed my healing process and allowed me to finally be at peace with the situation. God clearly spoke to me and said “its over...the grieving and hurt you have carried for years has come to the surface and transcended into my house (Gods House). It is forgiven!! - Anonymous
I love wearing the Vita pendant. As a defender of life, it is a continual reminder to be ready and instant in season with a word fitly spoken. It’s beauty and uniqueness invite conversations that led to precious opportunities to share God’s love. - Susan Hulet, Founder of Mercy House
I gave this as a gift to a family member who had a miscarriage last year. It reminds her of the life-giving Creator who gave her three children and all that she has. It has helped her grieve this loss and appreciate the life she has to live for her own family legacy. Thanks Vita for standing for LIFE! - LS
Dear Cindy, How do I begin to thank you for your amazing gift? The pendant is so beautiful - made even more so because of your heart for life, all life. Thank you for this tangible expression of love! I will wear it proudly, but also with deep reverence. Thank you, my sweet friend! - Love, Jill Marquis, SE Area Director, Surrendering the Secret
I recently got back in touch with an old high school friend after decades of life had passed by. It was great to catch up on the course of our lives. Come to find out my friend, Cindy, has her own company. Of course, I had to check out the website. I have two college age daughters and thought what a great gift. I ordered one for one daughter as a test to see her reaction. She loved it!!! She said her sister would definitely like one too. So, now I have ordered another. I think this is a great gift for a man to give to his daughters, his sisters or a wife or girlfriend. Also a great gift for a woman to give to any female family member, relative or friend. They will love it. Thank you Cindy for creating this awesome product. You were always a kind, sweet and sensitive soul and now I discover you are creative too! - Dr. Randall J. Soland
