Secrets:  This has to be one of the most touching pieces I have carved as far as the inspiration behind it goes. I an usually inspired to include some kind of humour - black or otherwise! - but this lovely Koala doesn't need it, you just need to know the story. Initially I was thinking of carving a Koala following the terrible Australian fires (hence the bandage on his arm). Then we were contacted by our very dear friend, Jane, who wanted a special piece to take as a gift on a life-changing trip to Australia. Jane and her twin sister Kathy were happily adopted as babies. Sadly, Kathy is no longer with us and jane has spent a large part of her adult life searching unsuccessfully for their birth mum. Until recently that is, when something amazing happened! Jane found her birth mum Gina! (hence the heart with Gina inside carved into this piece). Gina lives in Australia with her family. Both she and Jane have taken their time getting to know each other via email, letter and Facebook and Jane has also been introduced to her extended family who are all really excited to meet her. Unfortunately, as I write Covid-19 has forced the postponement of the reunion visit but Jane will make it soon and wow - what an emotional visit that will be. Good luck Jane and Gina - we are so pleased you have finally found each other.
