I just love this poem and have seen it on many adoption websites.
I don't know who the author is, but it is simply beautiful.
Some would gather money, along the path of life. Some would gather roses, and rest from worldly strife. But I would gather children from among the thorns of sin. I would seek a little child with a big and toothless grin. For money cannot enter in the land of endless day, and roses that are gathered soon wilt along the way. But oh, the laughing children, as I cross the sunset sea. And the gates swing wide to heaven. I can take them in with me.
Thanking God each day for the chance to parent our amazing children.
