Tears were falling for a child I couldn’t have,
Tears I didn’t realize was a prayer,
Tears were falling for the parents she didn’t have,
Tears she didn’t realize was a prayer,
Then one day we realized the heavens was listening when we cried for what we didn’t have.
The door that used to be hard started to open for us,
Our longing to love and be loved became the key to the door,
It was a door that opened when the time was right for us,
For years I longed to open the door,
The heavens finally said this child is meant for us.
No, the path to adoption isn’t an easy path,
Yes, both the parents and child have to have patience while they wait,
Yet some of us are destined to take that path,
Some parents are meant to work hard for a child that doesn’t want to wait,
Yet it’s a worth it path even if we have to work hard in this path.
