After the flood, Noah opened the window of the Ark and sent out a dove. The dove flew into the rainbow in search of land. The sweet and loyal bird returned carrying a freshly plucked olive leaf, a sign of life after the raging and devastating storm.
As the rainbow is born from the storm, Your Little Dove was born from shattering heartbreak. Our family's loss became a mission and vessel for hope, peace, and promise. At Your Little Dove, we promise to provide safe, gentle, ecofriendly, and heirloom-quality products for your child - your little dove.
Your Little Dove is an online retailer offering a selection of heirloom-quality childhood treasures including: baby essentials, goods, Waldorf, Montessori, and Reggio Emilia inspired toys, books, and sustainably made gifts.
Upon becoming a mother, owner and founder, Cindy Montoto found herself completely overwhelmed by the immense challenges parenthood brings. She longed for the simple things and felt incomplete upon searching for local and ethically made heirloom-quality baby goods. After experiencing a devastating miscarriage in August 2018, Cindy began receiving several signs of overpowering peace in the form of doves in her day to day life while trying to cope with the loss. She decided to take a leap of faith and open Your Little Dove as a solution to the in-completes and in hopes of offering peace of mind to other families.
The daughter of Cuban refugees, Cindy is the first in her family to be born in the United States. She graduated from Boise State University with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a certificate in Dispute Resolution. Cindy's area of emphasis is in child psychology and it was during her studies that she unearthed her deep passion for early learning while studying Rudolf Steiner, Jean Piaget, Erik Erikson, John Bowlby, Maria Montessori, and Reggio-Emilia. Cindy utilizes her extensive knowledge of child development when curating the products she selects for Your Little Dove. She is also a nationally certified Child Passenger Safety Technician, CPST, and has vast knowledge and experience with cloth diapering.
