Two Families: A Foster Care Adoption Poem

Once there were two expectant mothers.
One carried and cared for you beneath her beating heart
She became your Birthmother.
The other carried the hope of you within her.
She became your Mom.
Your Birthmother knew that she could not give you all you needed after you were born.
Meanwhile, your Mom was ready and waiting for you.
One day your Birthmom and Mom met each other.
They looked into each other’s eyes and saw a friend.
Your Birthmom saw the life your Mom could give you.
Your Mom saw how much your Birthmom loved you.
They decided that what you needed was both kinds of love in your life.
So now you have two families.
One by birth, the other by adoption.
And you have a home where you get:
Your questions answered,
Your boo boo bandaged,
You heartaches soothed,
And much needed hugs.
And a place where you can find:
Answers to your questions,
Your image in the mirror,
A part of yourself,
And much needed hugs.
Two different kinds of families
Two different kinds of love
Both a part of you.
