                                            An Adoption Prayer

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.

                My Precious Child

You are the poem I dreamed of writing

The masterpiece I longed to paint

You are the shining star I reached for,

A special someone to love

You are my life fulfilled and I thank God above

You are my child

For me you are the best

now with all things I am richly blessed

-Sharon Winslow

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 shining star
The other became your sun

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

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
That was all 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 question through the years
Heredity or environment
Which are you a product of?
Neither, my Darling, neither
Just two different kinds of love
