A poem about 2 mothers--a "first mom" and an adoptive mom
Two Mothers

Two mothers she would love,
though one she'd never know.
One gave the gift of life;
the other watched her grow.

Each gave what they could give,
a tapestry to share,
colorful threads from two artisans
woven with great care.

Two mothers loved one daughter-
two women who'd never met.
Each of the mothers live
forever in each other's debt.
