Adoption Poems/Sayings

I really like these poems & sayings about adoption and wanted to share them. I hope you enjoy them!

I didn’t give you the gift of life,
But in my heart I know.
The love I feel is deep and real,
As if it had been so.
For us to have each other
Is like a dream come true!
No, I didn’t give you
The gift of life,
Life gave me the gift of you.
~ Unknown

“An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but will never break.~ ” An ancient Chinese belief”
 
“The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each others life.” ~ Richard Bach
 
“It has been said that adoption is more like a marriage than a birth: two (or more) individuals, each with their own unique mix of needs, patterns, and genetic history, coming together with love, hope, and commitment for a joint future. You become a family not because you share the same genes, but because you share love for each other.
~ Joan McNamara
 
“We should not be asking who this child belongs to, but who belongs to this child.”

“By choice, we have become a family, first in our hearts, and finally in breath and being. Great expectations are good; great experiences are better.”
~ Richard Fischer
 

“However motherhood comes to you, it’s a miracle.” ~ Valerie Harper, Adoptive parent

For finding you mother,
There’s one certain test.
You must look for the creature
Who loves you the best.
— David Kirk (Little Miss Spider)
