11: The Chosen Heart Longing for a child to love, I'd wish upon the stars above. In my heart I always knew, A part of me was meant for you. I think how happy we will be, Once I adopt you, and you adopt me. I dream of all the joy you'll bring, The way it will feel to hold you tight, And tuck you in every night. The drawings on the refrigerator door, And childhood toys across the floor, The favorite stories read again and again, And hours of games with make-believe friends. The day you took my outstretched hand, A journey ended, but our lives began. Still mesmerized by your sweet face, Still warmed inside by our first embrace. I promised to give you a happy home, And a loving family all your own. A house you've now made complete, With laughter, smiles and tiny feet. A parent is one who guides the way, Know I will be there everyday. Rest easy as each night you sleep, A lifetime of love is yours to keep. Written by Terri Heart | Caitlyn Alia You have been our "Love Story" from the first day we met you. You will always be our "special delivery!" Love Always, Mom and Dad | Caitlyn
