I wrote this when I was waiting for Sarah

I was not there the first time you laughed
I missed the first bottle
I missed the first bath
I did not witness your first steps
You're growing so big without me
I hope I will be there to teach you to trust
You'll learn to speak my mother tongue
You won't be adopted when you're young
but you'll know the love of a family
God has not forgotten every tear you have cried alone my waiting child
and I have not forgotten you are there
My days would be empty without you.

Your Mom , Amy Heymann
