Message: "Child of the world, Into my heart you came -- Bringing sun into my life, Making family our name."
Child of my Heart is a tall figurine of a woman holding a young child in her arms. The mother and child have different hair and skin color, subtly implying that they may not be related by blood. The piece was inspired by a friend of Susan's who adopted an Asian child. However, the adoption reference does not prevent this piece from being meaningful for any parent and child.
As with all of Susan's sculptures, the piece is open to interpretation... the woman could be the child's birth mother, caregiver, godparent, aunt, etc. Regardless of relationship, the two share a strong love and bond. The sentiment for the piece is a love poem to a child. It may speak especially clearly to someone who has or is planning to adopt, as it refers to welcoming a long-awaited child into a family.
