Two Different
Kinds of Love

A Poem For An Adopted Child
~Author Unknown~

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 shining star
The other became your sun

The first gave you life
and the second taught you to live in it
The first gave you a need for love
And the second was there to give it

One gave you nationality
The other gave you a name
One gave you the seed of talent
The other gave you 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 she could do
The other prayed for a child
And God led her to you

And now you ask me through the tears
The age old questions through the years
Heredity or Environment - which are you a product?
Neither my darling - neither
Just two different kinds of love!

I dedicate this beautiful poem to my beautiful new found sister,
