ADOPTED

By Howard Kirkman, Army

Writing Type: Poem

Orphan word ... alien inference,
a stranger without advocate.
Yet to be adopted
is to be yearned for,
searched after,
to be wanted ...
for love ...
to receive love,
to give love ...
To be adopted
is to be beloved.
0, dear child,
you are no accident,
no unscheduled event.
We first dreamed .. .
then we hoped .. .
then we searched.
And we knew you,
for you were love,
watching for us,
who were looking for
just such a gift.
You are no stranger ...
You are ours.
