Adopt You (Poem)

You are getting older in the system,

You are hoping someone adopts you,

Yet many teens remain in the system,

It becomes hard to believe that someone is going to adopt you,

You wonder what’s going to happen to you as you continue to stay in the system.


I wonder how I’m going to take care of a young child,

My struggles make it difficult to raise a young child,

Thus, we aren’t seeking a young child,

We are seeking a teen instead of a young child,

A teen fits our lives more than a young child.


My question for you is “Would you accept a parent that isn’t perfect?”

You seek parents who’ll love you,

You want to be accepted even though you aren’t perfect,

We seek a teen just like you,

How about we become a family who loves each other even if we aren’t perfect?
