Not By Blood But By Love

 

 

SOMETIMES THERE IS A CONNECTION BETWEEN A WOMAN AND A CHILD
THAT IS FORMED NOT IN THE USUAL WAY, NOT BY BLOOD BUT BY LOVE

 

 

THAT'S THE CONNECTION I HAVE WITH YOU MY SWEET LORI.
I MAY NOT HAVE GIVEN BIRTH TO YOU BUT IN MY HEART YOU ARE MY CHILD.

 

 

FROM THE DAY WE FIRST MET  TEN YEARS AGO YOU AND I BONDED.
I DON'T NEED A PAPER TO SAY YOU ARE MY CHILD IT IS WRITTEN ON MY
HEART.

 

 

I HOPE YOU KNOW THAT I HAVE CHERISHED OUR SPECIAL BOND AND I
 ALWAYS WILL, I JUST WANTED TO TELL YOU HOW PROUD I AM OF YOU

 


YOU ALLOWED ME TO FILL IN FOR YOUR MOTHER ,AND I KNOW SHE IS
WATCHING FROM HEAVEN AND SHE IS JUST AS PROUD OF YOU AS I AM.

 

 

YOU MAY NOT HAVE MY BLOOD RUNNING THRU YOUR VEINS
BUT YOU DO HAVE MY LOVE ,SO THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING ME TO BE YOUR MOM.

 

 

I LOVE YOU GIRL
FOREVER AND ALWAYS

 

WRITTEN FOR A WONDERFUL YOUNG LADY
Lori Thomas
WHO ADOPTED ME AS HER MOM 10 YEARS AGO.
A BOND MADE OUT OF LOVE NOT BY BLOOD.
