We didn't give you

the gift of life,

But in our hearts we knew

The love we feel is deep and real,

As if it had been so,

For us to have each other

Is like a dream come true!

No, we didn't give you

The gift of life,

Life gave us

the gift of you.

 

 

Longing for a child to love,

I would wish upon the stars above.

In my heart I always knew,

A part of me was meant for you

I think how happy we will be,

Once we adopt you, and you adopt me.

I dream of all the joy you'll bring,

Imagining even the littlest things.

The way it will feel to hold you tightly

and tuck you in every night.

The drawings on the refrigerator door,

and the childhood toys across the floor,

The favorite stories read again and again,

and the hours of games with make believe friends,

The day you took my outstretched hand,

A journey ended, but our lives began.

Still mesmerized by your sweet face,

still warmed inside by our first embrace.

I promise to give you a happy home,

and a loving family all your own.

A house you've now made complete,

With laughter, smiles and tiny feet,

A parent is one who guides the way,

Know we will be there everyday.

Rest easy as each night you sleep,

A lifetime of love is yours to keep.

Longing for a child to love,

I'd wish upon the stars above.

In my heart I always knew,

A part of me belonged to you.
