The background behind the print, is a couple who are preparing for what comes ahead and they are sitting beside each other or across. In this process, they are praying to have good things in life and to have a good marriage, no matter what obstacles are to come, they are preparing themselves to overcome those together. So, when she found out she was 9 weeks pregnant, they were happy and excited, but things took a turn, and had a miscarriage. This print is about us because when I was creating this block, I couldn’t concentrate, and I had a feeling something good was happening. During those weeks, we were happy, but things didn’t work out, but I kept the process going, didn’t give up. This happened between February and March 2020 and that is when COVID-19 occurred. We do what we can by praying, burning cedar, and protecting ourselves from situations.
