Birthmother Poem

Here is a poem written by one of our recent adoptive mothers. It is too beautiful not to share.

Birthmother Poem
by Shannon Hills

Giver of life
Beacon of hope
Unselfish sacrifice
Beyond the courage of most
Nurturing watchman both day and night
Keeper of the dream until God's appointed time
Some say it was a mistake, an unplanned event
But the heavens rejoice that you chose to commit
To choose life, to give life, not once but twice
Birthmother, I thank you for the ultimate sacrifice!
Your child, our child, will always know
How deeply she was loved in the womb and forever more!
