My Wishes


I wish I knew their names

The names of every parent

Who adopted a child.


I wish I could thank them

Face to face with gratitude

For their love given.


I wish I could know

The children they’ve accepted

Who they love as their own.


I wish we could have

A great big party to celebrate

The creation of a Forever Family.


I wish no child

Would go to bed without parents

Without a home to call their own.


I wish I could do more

Than pray or draw attention to

National Adoption Awareness Month.


I wish just one child

Could find one Forever Family

Because it’s the right thing to do.


I wish those ones

Would soon add up to all

So every child has a family of their own.


I wish I could say thank you

To all the people who make

Adoption dreams come true.


Would I be saying thank you

To you, or you, or you

Or maybe to one of you?
d.f.a.v. 11/18/13

Thank you!
