#9341. Amanda creates a wishing tree during her dads year-long military deployment. By writing her thoughts and prayers on yellow ribbons and tying them to the branches, Amanda is able to express her feelings and feel connected to her dads daily life. As she wishes for her dad to enjoy good meals, make new friends, and return safely, the little tree comes to life with yellow ribbons of hope.
This heartwarming story beautifully illustrates the range of feelings a child experiences when a parent is deployed, the power of hope and prayer, and the joy of a parent returning home. Learn more about creating your own wishing tree.
