A sweet poem

Well the first week of having our LDS profile published is over, and our profile stats are doing well! We're hopeful, we've seen that 106 people (current stat!) have looked at it so far. Yay! We know this process will take time to bring the right people together, but we're happy to know at least we're being looked at :)

I came across a sweet poem I wanted to share. It's called "The Legacy of an Adopted Child", author unknown.

Once there were two women
Who barely knew each other.
One is in your heart forever,
The other you'll call Mother.

Two different lives,
Shaped to make yours one.
One became your guiding star,
The other became your sun.

The first gave you life,
And the second taught you how to live it.
The first gave you a need for love,
And the second was there to give it.

One gave you a nationality,
The other gave you a name.

One gave you the seed 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 a family,
It was what God intended for her to 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 question through the years.
Heredity or environment...
Which are you a product of?
Neither, my darling...neither,
Just two different kinds of love.


Have a great weekend!
