I found this poem which touched an emotion I would like to share. You see, I was adopted. As the poem points out, a mom is much more than simply 'blood'. The love a mom gives to her adopted or foster child is truely a love from the heart. It takes a very special, loving person to adopt or foster a child. To all those special Moms I hope you have the best mothers day or all. Happy Mother's Day!
|~ For All That You Have Given Me ~|
|For all that you have given me,
I can return but love. For you
Bound up the wounds I did not see
And gave me hopes and passions new.I can return but love for you,
Whose unmoved faith my heart did move,
And gave me hopes and passions new,
And loved me till I turned to love.
Whose unmoved faith did my heart move?
The mother of my heart, not blood,
Bound up the wounds I did not see.
And I became the soul I would
For all that you have given me.
