Orphan's Prayer


Each night before I go to bed I fold my hands and bow my head
Praying for a family and the day she will come for me I ask God
to watch over my friends at the orphanage The place that I call home
Wishing we find families and rooms of our very own.
I finish my prayers and climb into bed
Hoping that God heard what I said
My prayers usually turn out to be my dreams at night
Hoping they will be standing there when I wake to the morning light
One very special morning, I will hear their call
I jump out of bed and run down the hall!
Is it them, Is it them, is that why they've called my name?
Running I hear them shout "It's them, it's them, they finally came!"
Have all my prayers been answered, have all my dreams come true
There they are in front of me, Oh Mama & Papa! Oh Mama & Papa!!
Is it really you?

"Yes, it is my darling, We've come to take you home,"
"We will love, protect and cherish and you will never be alone."
Mama & Papa looks at me so differently a look so new to me,
They touch me so gently, just as I dreamed it would be.
As I look into their eyes I watch them fill with water,
They embrace me and whisper, "I love you so my daughter".
They take my hand and hold it tight, I will never
let it go, I hold with all my might. Hand in hand we walk together,
No one needs to speak; we know this is forever.
And through our journey when we finally meet each other,
She will have found her dream and I will have found my mother & father.

I had reposted from another blog I came across.  Thought it was worth it.  As I enjoyed a meal with my family, I wondered how my children are doing across the ocean.  Are they hungry, are they cold?  I just don't know.  I can only pray that they are well taken care of.  However, no matter how well taken care of they  may be, no one can take the place of a forever family's love and attention.  Please, please do not forget about all the orphans still praying for a family on this day of Thanksgiving.  I know we haven't.  Need our addendum asap to then get I-800A approval.  Hope you enjoyed the poem.  More to come tomorrow on our incredible blessing.
