Year End – Adoption Poem


As we come to the end of 2010 and look towards the future, I’d like to share this Adoption Poem with you.  It gives hope to the millions of children waiting for families to love them.

 

Legacy of an Adopted Child

 

Once there were two women…Who never knew each other…

One you do not remember…The other you call Mother…

Two different lives…Shaped to make you one…

One became your guiding star…The other became your sun…

The first one gave you life…The second taught you to live it…

The first gave you a need for love…The second was there to give it…

One gave you a nationality…The other gave you a name…

One gave you talent…The other gave you aim…

One gave you emotion…The other calmed your fears…

One saw your first sweet smile…The other dried your tears…

One sought for you a home…That she could not provide…

The other prayed for a child…And her hope was not denied…

And now you ask me through your tears…

The age-old question unanswered through the years…

Heredity or environment…Which are you a product of?…

Neither my darling, neither…Just two different kinds of Love…
