Not flesh of my flesh, Nor 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

Today I kissed an angel
I knew it from the start
the first time my angel smiled at me
I gave away my heart
Today I kissed an angel
this angel child of mine
though not of my creation
my child by God's design
Today I kissed an angel
my heart is dancing wild
a family, by a miracle
blessed by this angel child

I wasn't expected; I was selected!

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.

Adoption is when a child grew
in its mommy's heart instead of her tummy.

He who brings up, not he who begets, is the father.
-- The Bible

If a mother and father can love more than one child,
then certainly a child can love more than one mother or father."

Legacy of an Adopted Child Poem:
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 other 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.

I Did not plant you.
But when the season is done
When the alternate
prayers for sun
and for rain
are counted
When the pain
of weeding
And the pride
Of watching are through
Then I will hold you high.
A shining sheaf
above the thousand
seed grown wild.
Not my planting
But my heaven
my harvest
my child
