If you don’t mind a good cry today…

Legacy of An Adopted Child

(Author Unknown)

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,

The other became your sun.

The first gave you life

And the second taught you to live it

The first gave you the need for love

And the second was there to give it.

One gave you nationality,

The other gave you a name.

One gave you a seed of talent,

The other gave you an aim.

One gave you emotions,

The other calmed your fears.

One saw your sweet first smile,

The other dried your tears.

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 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.
