Adoption Poem

I was 19 when I had my daughter 19 years ago. My life continues to be a struggle. When I found out my daughter was pregnant at 18, I saw my life all over again. The odds would be against her. I simply gave her the tools she needed and let her make her own decision. She knew she wasn't ready to be a mother and she knew I couldn't financially help. After lots of tears and prayers, God led us to a wonderful open adoptive family. We know my grandson will never go without.

From The Love Of A Grandmother


Published: September 2017

From the moment I knew of you, so many emotions filled my mind.
This wasn't supposed to happen, not right now; I cried.

My love for you began to grow, which makes this so very hard.
To let you go with the hopes and dreams that your life will never be scarred.

As I watched her belly grow each day and I could feel you move inside,
There was never any shame of you, only a sense of pride.

I prayed and prayed every night for God to show the way.
I only want the best for you at this moment and every day.

I held you in my arms so tight and heard your little cry.
I will see you very soon, I said, but I will never say goodbye.

It brings me joy to know that you'll have everything you need in life.
For at this time it hurts to say these are things we couldn't provide.

I close my eyes and I see your face, wishing I could be with you.
I miss you dearly every day, for this is all so new.

You are loved so much by all of us and are so dear to our hearts.
For one day we'll be together again; our lives will never part.
