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 yours one.

One became your guiding star; the other became your sun.

One gave you a nationality; the other gave you a name.

One gave you the seed of talent; the other gave you an aim.

One gave you emotions; the other calmed your fears.

One saw your first sweet smile; the other dried your tears.

One gave you up, it was all that she could do.

The other prayed for a child and God led her straight to you.

And now you ask me through your tears.

The age-old questions through the years:

Heredity or environment, which are you a product of?

Neither my child, neither; just two different kinds of love.

Adoption Creed

Not flesh of my fleshNor bone of my bone,

But still miraculously my own.

Never forget for a single minute,

You didn't grow under my heart,

But in it.

Kisses in the Wind

I hold you in my heart and touch you in my dreams.You are here each day with me, at least that's how it seems.

I know you wonder where we are... what's taking us so long.

But remember child, I love you so and God will keep you strong.

Now go outside and feel the breeze and let it touch your skin...

Because tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.

May God hold you in His hand until I can be with you.

I promise you, my darling, I'm doing all that I can do.

Very soon, you'll have a family for real, not just pretend.

But for tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.

May God wrap you in His arms and hold you very tight.

And let the angels bring the kisses that I send to you each night.

The Gift of Life

I didn't give you the gift of life,But in my heart I know.

The love I feel is deep and real,

As if it had been so.

For us to have each other

Is like a dream come true!

No, I didn't give you

The gift of life,

Life gave me the gift of you.

Our Children

Our children are not ours because they share our genes...

they are ours because we have had the audacity to envision them.

That, at the end of the day...or long sleepless night,

is how love really works.

Family Tree

We've added to our family tree, a stronger one to make...A child from another plant, has become our new namesake.

Just as a limb is grafted from one tree to another...

It alters and improves the plant, making it uniquely, like no other.

Our family tree has been improved, adoption made this so...

For love, much more than bloodlines, makes us thrive and grow.

We chose to share our life and love, and all the joys to come...

Our "Family Tree" has blossomed, with the arrival of our son.
