Once there were two women who never knew each other.
One you do not remember, the other you call "Mother".
Two different lives, shaped to make you one...
One became your guiding star, the other became your sun.
The first one gave you life, and the second taught you to live it.
The first gave you a need for love, the second was there to give it.
One gave you a nationality, the other gave you a name.
One gave you a seed of talent, the other gave you aim.
One gave you emotions, the other calmed your fears.
One saw your first sweet smile, the other dried your tears.
One made an adoption plan, that was all that she could do.
The other prayed for a child, and God led her straight to you.
Now which of these two women are you the product of?
Both, my darling! Both! Just two different kinds of love.
