Mother’s Day 2011

To the birth mothers of my children:

Sade,  thanks for letting me share this, I look forward to the day  we get to
see you in person again.  I love you, I thank you.
Have I ever told you how beautiful you are?

I honor you, your sacrifice
Your love and gift has changed my life
I thank you and God every day
I pray I can show them the way

I promise to teach honor toward you
Often I tell your story true
He knows in his heart of the love you share
She knows of the months of sacrifice and care

I know sometimes this life is rough,
Can I ever thank you enough?
A part of you will always live
The part you so kindly chose to give

And sometimes late at night
I go to his room and hold him tight
I snuggle her while she sleeps
And whisper of the love you keep

Every day I see in the eyes of a child
The light of your love quiet and mild
And I ask myself...
Where would I be what would I do?
If I didn’t have my little two…
