My Adopted Daughter
I met a girl named Lorri at a deli where I worked.
She told me she was pregnant and would I be there for the birth.
She said my mom has passed away and I don't want to
The look upon her face made me want to take her home.
She needed a new mother, someone there to hold her hand.
I said that I'd be happy to, cause I thought that she
We don't have a legal paper to say that she's my
But I try to make her see that to me she means the world.
I love you Lorri.
For my adopted daughter
Sometimes just because you're not related by blood
doesn't mean you can't be family. I have known Lorri 5 years
And to me she is as much my daughter as if I'd given birth to her.
