I dream of the day.

I have never been very poetic, and this poem may be a little cheesy, but oh well. I wrote it for our future adopted children. We cannot wait to adopt. If we were having children the old fashioned way ;) ( just kidding), we would have a little more patience. BUT, since we are adopting, our hearts ache for all the orphans, and our hearts yearn to love on our sweet baby, (babies). We know it is God's timing, so we are patient, but we also are looking to the future with excitement, dreams and hope.


I dream of the day when God smiles down,
And shows us which child will be ours for now.
The day we adopt you and carry you home,
Where you will always be loved and never alone.

I dream of the day when we will see,
If a prince or a princess you will be.
The day I can dress you in blue or pink,
Whether son or daughter, our hearts will link.

I dream of the day that our waiting will end,
You will become our child, whom God will lend.
The day you will enter into my arms,
Where I will always protect you from hurt and from harm.

I dream of the day that you will be mine,
To love and to cherish until the end of time.
The day I can raise you to know and love Jesus,
From sin and from strife, He is the One who frees us!

I dream of the day that you come to know the Lord,
The One with a gift that we could never afford.
The day that you accept His gift that’s free,
We will be the happiest parents anyone could see!

I dream of the day, because it is not yet our time,
So we are waiting on the Lord for His timing Divine.
The day we want so dearly, we must wait for it some more,
But we love you already: yesterday, today and forevermore!

Love, Mommy
