"To be adopted is special.
It means someone out there, really, really loves you.
No one should be sad,
You should be glad that someone out there loves you.
When you are a baby, people laugh for you.
And when you giggle, they give you all of their ahh’s and ooh’s.
To a sweet face of any race, kisses will bound.
While you are growing up, thoughts go around your head.
Just remember, you are special.
