Adoption Poem

Biological And Adoptive Mothers

I have been wanting to write a poem about the topic of adoption for quite a while now as it is very close to my heart. I hope you enjoy my poem as much as I enjoyed writing it, and I hope that my poem touched you in some way. (Note: I am Irish, and in Ireland "Mam" is what we call mom/mum, etc.)

Bright Blue Eyes

My Mother gave me my talents and traits.
My Mam taught me to embrace them.

My Mother gave me my fears and doubts.
My Mam taught me to face them.

My Mother gave me my clumsy ways.
My Mam picked me up from the mud.

My Mother gave me my bright blue eyes.
My Mam taught me to see the good.

I am not angry that my Mother gave me away.
I know it was to give me the best.

Adoption is building a family through dedication and love.
For the family I have, I am blessed.
