Hello all,

It's been a while since I have visited here, but I have been extremely busy.  I normally would access PIP while at work but that has been really hard lately, but I have not forgotten my friends here.

As I mentioned, I am needing some literary advice.  My sister is adopting her foster child who has been in her care for almost 2 years.  Madison, the adoptee, was only an infant when she first came into my sister's care.  Now she is 2 years old.  She has been a blessing to both my sister and my whole family.

My problem:  I have been recruited (as the poet of the family) to be creative and write a little something to print on adoption announcements.  My brain is on "lock down" and the words won't flow.  Does anyone have any advice?

Thanks for all your help.

Naome

We came into each otherís life
And knew deep in our heart
That we were always meant
to be together from the start

We looked into each otherís eyes
and knew that she would be
Forever part of all the love
That makes our family

So join with us as we hold hands
Encircling the love
This joyous gift that came to us
From heaven up above


I hope this is of some help Naome?
If not, just let me know, and Iíll write
some more for you that might...

So nice to see you again!

Blessings to you and your family!

I think something about 'choosing her' would be good. Sounds like your family is very loving and giving. Congratulations!

Thanks Richy for your wonderful talent...you are truly blessed.  I have come up with this so far...I think that maybe I might be trying too hard.  What do you think?

Not born to me
by God's design
but made for me

just a suggestion, maybe for this task go with free verse instead of metered rhyme...i think for intimate situations as these it might work a little better...here is my help if you wish

a little bundle on joy
came to us wrapped so tight
we never wanted to let you go
and this is how we will show you
you are now part of our family
even though you are not of blood
we love every drop of you
because you are our child
we love you with all our soul
forever you story will be told

...i don't know if you want to use any of it but i tried...good luck
