Fostering Love

I try not to hold my breath
while waiting for the time,
when all of my children
will legally be mine.

When each child came home
and with us took their part
God placed another bit
of love within my heart.

I never really knew
what was happening to me
or how my heart would grow
and love would come to be.

But God knows each of us
and where we will be best
and sometimes places children
in someone else’s nest.

Soon it will be time
for everyone to see
that all of my dear children
should always live with me.
