My Favorite Poem For Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to my two awesome moms! I'm so blessed to have both of you in my life! Love 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 yours one

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

The first gave you life,
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 the seed for talent,
The other gave you an aim.

One gave you emotions,
The other calmed your fears

One saw your first smile,
The other dried your tears.

One gave you up,
It was all that she could do

The other prayed for a child
And was led straight to you.

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

"Heredity or environment, which am I the product of?"

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

I really liked this part of the article... with a nice and interesting topics have helped a lot of people who do not challenge things people should know... You need more publicize this so many people who know about it are rare for people to know this. Success for you...!!!
