Forever Family

Last night a judge signed a piece of paper that makes our daughter ours legally.  She was ours from the moment she was created now she's ours forever....

A Poem for Adoption

I
Did not plant you,
True.
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
Seeds grown wild.

Not my planting,

But by heaven
My harvest
My own child.

-Carol Lynn Pearson
