The helpless newborn baby cries.
Distraught his mother weeps.
Adoption separates their bond
That they may never meet.

The birth mother ever grieves her loss.
The adoptive mother gains
What nature failed to give--a child
To raise and give a name.

Fears between them all abound--
Predominate is loss.
What if the birth mother seeks and finds--
Intrusion interrupts.

What if the child decides to search
Connection to his past?
Will adoptive parents be replaced--
Lose loyalty and love?

What is the birth mother turns away
The child that tries to meet?
The answers lie within the heart,
Making everyone complete.
