While I cherish my four blessings on this Mother's Day, I can't help but to also think about the mother on the other side of the world who does not know her daughter. The little girl who is now my daughter, my blessing.
Legacy of an Adopted Child
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 you one.
One became your guiding star, the other became your sun.
The first one gave you life and the second taught you to live it.
The first gave you a need for love, the second was there to give it.
One gave you a nationality, the other gave you a name.
One gave you a talent, the other gave you aim.
One gave you emotions, the other calmed your fears.
One saw your first sweet smile, the other dried your tears.
One made an adoption plan, that was all that she could do.
The other prayed for a child and God led her straight to you.
Now which of these two women are you a product of?
Both, my darling, both. Just two different kinds of love.
