Thirty Days of Thanksgiving: Day 6 – Adoption

This is part of a series called “Thirty Days of Thanksgiving”. 

A compilation of what I am most thankful. In no certain order. Just those things most near and dear to me.

Two Different Kinds of Love

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 nationality. 
The other gave you a name.

One gave you a talent. 
The other gave you aim.

One gave you emotions. 
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, which are you a product of?
Neither, my darling. Neither. 

Just two different kinds of Love.
