Adoption: Two Kinds of Love
Once there were two women
who never knew each other.
One you do not remember
the other you call Mother.
One became your guiding 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 a nationality,
the other gave you a name,
One gave you the seed of a 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
it was all that she could do,
The other prayed for a child
and God led her straight to you.
And now you ask me through your tears,
the age old questions through the years,
Heredity or Environment
which are you the product of?
Neither my darling-neither
just two different kinds of love.
What has had the greater influence on YOUR LIFE and who YOU are today – Heredity or Environment?
Here’s what Bob & Debby Ross had to say after reading my new novel – THE GATHERING —
“Thoughtful approach to listening to one another, reducing anger, and living with grace and compassion. Well written and engaging.”
