I was first drawn to this item because of the lovely poem that accompanies the glass cross. I was looking for a small gift to give the children I have taught to prepare for their First Holy Communion, and the sentiment seemed perfect. I also liked that the glass cross appeared gender neutral, as I have boys and girls in my glass. It arrived nicely boxed and the cross is beautiful and each one unique. It comes with a little white ribbon to hang the cross, either on the wall or as a Christmas ornament, I'm thinking. They have similar crosses for other occasions, which I intend on purchasing when needed. I wish they made one for "Teachers", as I would love to get one for my children's religious education teachers.
