Adoption Poems & Videos

I have read many poems and watched many vidoes related to adoption, but silly me has forgotten to bookmark many of them. If you know of any sites and/or if you have blog posts with something you want to me to read or see, please leave a comment. I am really interested.

Here's my favorite. I found it on a pic in a bookstore this past summer:

I didn't give you the gift of life,
but in my heart I know,
the love I feel is deep and real
as if it had been so.
For us to have each other
is like a dream come true.
No, I didn't give you the gift of life,
Life gave me the gift of you.

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 your 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 a need for love, and the second was there to give it.
One gave you a nationality, the other gave you a name.
One gave you a seed of talent, the other gave you an aim.
One gave you emotions, the other calmed your fears.
One saw your first sweet smile, the other dried your tears.
One gave you up ... that's all she could do.
The other prayed for a child and God led her straight to you.
And now you ask me, through your fears,
the age old question unanswered throughout the years...
Heredity or environment, which are you the product of?
Neither, my darling … neither.
Just two different kinds of love.

My favorite being an adopted child.
