Maybe 2012 Will Be Their Year

I saw you meet your child today
You kissed your baby joyfully
And as you walked away with her
I played pretend you’d chosen me.

I saw you meet your child today
But this time there was something new
A nurse came in and took my hand
And then she gave my hand to you.

Can this be true? I’m almost six!
And there are infants here you see?
But then you kissed me and I knew
The child you chose this time was me
.

~ Debbie Bodie, The Waiting Child

This poem expresses the feeling that many of these children we featured on our blog last year might have experienced as they continue to wait for a family to choose them.  If you’d like to learn more about any of these waiting children, please click on their names to link to previous blogs about them or contact our Adoption Assistance team at [email protected]. It is our most fervent hope that each and every one of these children will experience the joy of knowing that they were chosen by a family in 2012.

Love Without Boundaries proudly advocates for adoption but is not an adoption agency. We invite you to contact [email protected] with questions about a child we have featured and encourage you to contact your local adoption agency for more information about China’s Waiting Child Program.
