Adoption Poems

As you lay sleeping far away as still as you could be…
How could you know the joy today this photo brings to me?

A few short weeks and you’ll be mine, and “I” will soon be “We”.
How could you know the love I feel? It’s something you can’t see.

So have sweet dreams, my precious babe. Sleep well and tenderly.
Some say that you’re the lucky one. How could you know it’s me.


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


Natural Child: Any child who is not artificial.
Real Parent: Any parent who is not imaginary.
Your Own Child: Any child who is not someone else’s child.
Adopted Child: A natural child, with a real parent, who is all my own
