La La How The Life Goes On

Happy Adoption Day!

Posted on: March 10, 2014

For my amazing, resilient, kickass daughter on the 9th anniversary of us becoming a family.

Haiku for Bambina

You. Placed in my arms.
So sweet and fuzzy and small.
I felt so small too.

The weight of your trust
Your bravery. Your faith leap.
Hit like Guangdong heat.

Instantly bonded,
We belong to each other.
Now and forever.

Every year March
I thank God you are my girl;
Still sweet. Less fuzzy.

Every year March
I cry for your birth mother
Who gave life to you.

And to me.
