Adoption Stories (and Poetry...)

    ~~~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

One gave you a nationality
The other gave you a name
One gave you the seed of talent
The other gave you an aim

Two different lives shaped
to make yours one
One became your guiding star
The other became your sun

One gave you emotions
The other calmed your fears
One saw your first sweet smile
The other dried your tears

The first gave you Life and
The second taught you to live in it
The first gave you a need for love
And the second was there to give it

One gave you up,
It was all that she could do
The other prayed for a child
And God led her straight to you

And now you asked 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.
