Many birth mothers have written poems or something special for their birth child. We want to see those, if you are comfortable with sharing.

It doesn't have to be something written to your birth child. It could be something written about adoption or your adoption journey.

It doesn't even have to be by you personally. You could post a quote that has helped you get through the pain of your good bye.

Whatever words are on your heart, please share those here.

Just copying my poem to this sticky'd thread.

I wrote this poem when I was pregnant wtih my birthson. I had it professionally done in calligraphy and framed. The A-mom cried when I gave it to her. To this day, over 15 years later, it's still hanging on his bedroom wall.

My child you are my flesh and blood,
Your life has barely begun.
You live deep inside my womb,
where our two hearts beat as one.

You were planted as a tiny seed,
your soul from the heavens above.
You're a beautiful flower about to bloom,
and your sunshine is my love.

I've asked the Lord for his guiding hand,
to help me along the way,
In deciding what is best for you,
to insure your life is gay.

I hope you never hate me,
for what I feel that I must do,
and please don't think, the reason's that
I never had love for you.

I've chosen two special people,
to be your mom and dad.
They can give you all the wonderful things
I only wish I had.

They've offered you their love through me
They're very kind and caring
They have a home of peace and security
of family love and sharing.

Believe me, if things were different,
you'd stay with me forever.
But in my heart I'll always love you
although we're not together.

So if one day, you're feeling lonely,
maybe sad and quite unsure,
believe in that special bond between us,
that bond is strong and pure.

Your Birthmother

Copying mine too!

I wrote this poem when I was 5 months preggo. It wasn't written for my birth daughter. It was written about the choice of adoption. The Gladney Center actually posted this on their site without my permission... they put that it was by "an anonymous birth mother" But it was by me... I don't mind at all. I just wish they would've put my name.. laugh.gif

A Choice

The thoughts of truth enter my vicious mind.
And my first thoughts . . .
Selfish ones.
The warmth of my heart showed through my smile,
as I entered the cruel world of pain.
My childish thoughts soon became responsible ones,
as I chose adoption.
The thought of my child in a warm, responsible, loving home, comforted me.
My love never lost.
Deep inside always a mother,
and deep inside and outside I'll always love.
A precious child deserves the best a mother can give them.
And this,
I know,
is the best.

I know that probably everyone has read or seen this before, but I absolutely love it and it helped me a ton!!!

Legacy of an adopted child

Once there were two women who never knew each other.

One you do not remember, the other you call Mother.

Two different lives shaped to make you one.

One became your guiding star, the other became your sun.

The first one gave you life and the second taught you to live it.

The first gave you a need for love, the second was there to give it.

One gave you a 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 sought for you a home that she could not provide.

The other prayed for a child and her hope was not denied.

And now you ask me through your tears the age old question.

Unanswered through the years.

Heredity or environment what are you the product of?

Neither my darling, neither. Just two different kinds of love.
