Maia she is beautiful. I love so much the pairing of children with animal companions, that is one of the first things that attracted me to your Paulette aside from her theatrical outfit. I was reading this online the other day on Totem animals:"A life totem is the animal that follows your throughout your life, in a spiritual sense. This animal’s primary purpose is to protect a child, guide an adolescent, and wait for instruction from an adult. Its purpose will change as you grow and expand, but usually, your life totem will not change as you mature.Totem animals are sacred spiritual guides who will instruct and protect you when you need them most. They have skills and abilities that can help to deepen your understanding of yourself and your own inner strength."
