TO OUR ADOPTED CHILD

We never knew you in the womb,
But we knew you in our hearts;
Although we didn't give you life,
God planned this from the start.

He knew in the great design of life,
We'd have a family;
So He grafted there a precious branch,
Into our family.

The sweetest little angel,
So full of love and life;
The greatest gift that God can give,
To a husband and a wife.

You are our greatest blessing,
And we thank our Father above;
For making us your parents,
And giving us you to love.
