But on a more serious note please PLEASE before we shop for our families think of others who might not get anything for Christmas! It will make Christmas just that much better for someone else!

Dear Birthmother poem

~ I found this poem the other day and i love it!!~~~
We have a bond, dear birthmother and I,

It’s the love of a child, we can't deny.

You are a blessing from afar,

To send to us your bright, shining star.

Her journey to us would not have occurred, if your love for her had

ever swerved.

I thank you this day from the bottom of my heart, a sacrifice to one,to

another a fresh start.

This start includes honor to you, as you are the birthmother, twill

always be true.

But I have the pleasure of continuing her journey, as her adoptive

mom, there is no returning.

We have a bond, dear birthmother and I, I pray we will meet one day

in the sky.

I will treasure my blessing every day until then, and pray you'll be

there,so I may thank you again
