Not flesh of my flesh,
Nor bone of my bone,
But still Miraculously my own.
Never forget for a single minute,
You did not grow under my heart,
But in it.
-Fleur Conkling Heyliger
This is another well-known poem about adoption. I did not carry my children in my body. I carried them in my prayers, hopes, dreams, tears, imagination, and heart.
