Welcome to this World
You probably have no idea
how special you are.
For years and years you
will carry a scar.
Unwanted, unloved, abandoned
People will tell your story with
Was it a pit toilet, a garbage bag,
or buried alive?
Unwanted, unloved, until at our gate
Our eyes well with tears as we
hear your story,
Knowing you will be safe now-
we give God the glory.
It breaks our hearts that you came
to us this way,
Unwanted, unloved, and abandoned
Welcome to this world, my sweet
This day of your birth has been
anything but mild.
We will give you love, care, and even
your first meal,
As you wait for your new family,
we hope you will heal.
