I came across this poem of adoption not to long ago. I felt the words were so beautifully written to describe a child’s heritage, both past and present. An adopted child is not solely the product of the birth parents nor the adoptive parents but a combination of the two. No matter the child’s story whether they are adopted domestically or internationally, they will carry with them this heritage. They are a special creation that God has ordained for a special purpose. It is something to be valued and treasured.
