Ode to my 2 mothers
There are a select few of us in the world who have two mothers, and I am one of them. I have two moms who care about me, give me support and shower me with praise. One mother gave birth to me and one raised me, but both have always loved me. I am one very lucky daughter. I hope I can always live up to their expectations and be the best daughter possible. xoxo
Legacy of an Adopted Child
Once there were two people, who never knew each other.
One you do not remember, the other you call mother.
Two different lives shaped to make yours one.
One became your guiding star, the other became your sun.
The first gave you life, and the second taught you to live it.
The first gave you the need for love, and the second was there to give it.
One gave you nationality, the other gave you a name.
One gave you the seed of talent, the other gave you aim.
One gave you emotion, the other calmed your fears.
One saw your first sweet smile, the other dried your tears.
One gave you up, it was all that she could do.
The other prayed for a child, and God led her straight to you.
And now you ask me through your tears, the age-old question through the years. - Which are you a product of?
Neither my darling, neither - Just two different kinds of love.
