Happy New Year fellow readers,

I know the blog has been a little neglected but here's poem I came across from one of the wonderful, strong women I work with who have made an adoption plan…I'd be interested to hear your thoughts!

A birthmother’s prayer

They laid the baby in her arms
she watched her newborn son sleeping
she bowed her head in silent prayer
and asked the Lord for his safe keeping
you know his life has just begun
sometimes it won't treat him fair
so be with him when I can't
all I can give my little one
is this Mother's Prayer.

She tries her best to explain
as she holds his little hand
she says you're meant for better things
I hope that you can understand
all the papers have been signed
and your new home's waiting there
and one day they'll tell you soon
how you were the answer to
another Mother's Prayer
