A Mother's Love

She left you one morning,
She had no choice.
In a country of millions
She had just one voice.

The law made it clear
One child would do.
To obey it would mean
No hope for you.

As she laid you down
Her eyes became blurried.
On saying goodbye
Said don't you worry.

Another will come
To take my place.
A mother will come
From a different race.

She'll hold you and love you
As if you're her own.
She'll take you away
To a brand new home.

She then ran away
Her heart broke in two.
Don't ever forget
Of my love for you.

Hi Jody,
I am new to your blog via K1's blog where I saw you posted about driving past her church and realized we must live in proximity of one another. I too am adopting from China and live in Duvall and have been connected with K1 for almost 2 years now.

So, I just wanted to pop in and say 'hello' and wish you the very best in your journey to adopt DD#2.
