Adoption Poetry

Updated on January 10, 2015

Adoption can be a difficult choice.

Writing poetry is easy for a lot of people, it's finding the right words that is difficult. Sometimes the words come out of nowhere, and you find yourself speechless after reading what you have put down.

Whether you enjoy writing it, or even just reading it, there are poems that have touched us all in one way or another.

Adopted

There are so many different reasons for wanting to both adopt a child or giving a child up for adoption. Wanting to adopt is a very selfless act of wanting to better a living situation for a child or animal, and raise them and love them as if you had personally given birth to them. It takes a lot of love to open your home to another family member.

If you happen to be the parent giving your child up for adoption, you should never feel bad about your decision. This is also a very selfless decision that is never to be taken lightly, and any parent would understand the choice at hand. Taking the proper steps to ensure that your child or pet will have the best life possible is always difficult to face, but is worth all of the hard efforts in the end to be sure they receive the best love and care possible.

The best pregnancy book ever!

During most first time pregnancies, the new-to-be mother will want to read as much about the pregnancy as possible. This book has absolutely everything you will need to know while you are pregnant.

There's also a book by the same author which guides you to a healthy way to eat to make sure you and your baby are getting all of the nutrients you require to have a healthy baby and mom.

Face In The Crowd

Forty-two hours of labour

then I hear a beautiful cry;

I hold you for a brief moment

before I say good-bye.

I want something better for you,

more than I could ever give.

I know the choice is right

so a better life you'll live.

After I've packed my stuff to leave

I decide to take a peek,

looking at all those babies

I know you are most unique.

I will love you always and forever,

you make me so darn proud

to be your loving mother

though to you I'll be just a face in the crowd.

Best Friend

Brown with spots

black and white

the energetic one barking

or the quiet one on the right

I'll walk him every day mom

I promise, I swear

I'll do everything you want

if I can have that one right there

I'll love him every day

and sleep with him every night

I'll play with him all of the time

and teach him not to bite

He'll be my best friend

and I'll be his

he looks so much like a bear cub

I think I'll call him Grizz

Oh thank-you mom

thank-you so much

I will never release him

from my loving clutch.

      @Brite-Ideas: Although I none of my children are adopted (nor my siblings), but I just got married 2 years ago to a man who has adopted my children as his own. I think that it is such a wonderful thing.

      @Lady Lorelei: Yes, we must always do what is best for our children, even if it hurts us in the process.

      Beautifully done. I love the adoption poetry. Adopting out a child can be hard but sometimes it is the best course for the future of that child if the parent is unable to provide a suitable home.

      @anonymous: Absolutely, there are so many children out there in foster homes that are looking for a nice family to adopt them, there aren't nearly as many adoptive families to fill the need of the children unfortunately. And now with so many people adopting over seas, that leaves all the more in our countries too.

      think its great to adopt, have your children if you can but adopt if you can't, alot of kids need wanting parents.
