Loving a child

Every one today has many different ways to saying how/what way you show love. Some times showing love and giving love can be the hardest thing you have every done.

This is so true as to any woman that has placed their child for adoption, this is to you ~ Thank you. I realize that you may not hear that to often or maybe even never. I say this from the fact that I am adopted so I mean this with all my heart>

I received this in an email today from an old friend. Life is interesting as you never know what others have gone through and how similar your lives may be.

It's by Oscar Hammerstein "Love in your heart wasn't put there to stay. Love isn't Love, til you give it away..."


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 guiding star

And the other became your sun

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 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 ~

It 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 the product of?

Neither, my darling, neither

Just two different kinds of love
