Baby with a Velveteen RabbitThere was once a velveteen rabbit, and in the beginning he was really 
splendid. He was fat and bunchy, as a rabbit should be; his coat was 
spotted brown and white, he had real thread whiskers, and his ears 
were lined with pink sateen...
"What is REAL?" asked the Rabbit one day, when they were lying side by
side near the nursery fender, before Nana came to tidy the room. "Does
it mean having things that buzz inside you and a stick-out handle?"

"Real isn't how you are made," said the Skin Horse. "It's a thing that
happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just
to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real."

"Does it hurt?" asked the Rabbit.

"Sometimes," said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. "When
you are Real you don't mind being hurt."

"Does it happen all at once, like being wound up," he asked, "or bit
by bit?"

"It doesn't happen all at once," said the Skin Horse. "You become. It
takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who
break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept.
Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved
off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very
shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are
Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand."

Once upon a time, Sylvia was dream.  Sarah loved her and cared for her, but she had not become real.  Through the heartbreak and joy of adoption, Sylvia came to be the miracle of a dream come true.One year pictures Greenville SC

As Sarah shared the tiniest glimpse into their journey and Sylvia cuddled this rabbit during her One Year Old Pictures Greer SC, I could not help but feel the strong stirring of The Velveteen Rabbit echoing from my childhood. The visual cue certainly helped.
