Board Name: Wales (Adoption Related)
Catherine and Arlene UK Jul 11, 2000
On the day of my birth
There were no loving arms to greet me
There were no smiles to mark my coming
There were no sounds of laughter and delight
Cooed by birth relations as they
Tickled my tiny feet and
Counted each finely nailed toe.
On the day of my birth
There was no mother's milk
There was no father who even knew
There was no flash photography or flowers
Or helium balloons strewn with curly pink ribbon
And emblazoned with the words
"Welcome! It's a girl!"
On the day of my birth
There were nurses in masks
There were doctors with forceps
There were blinding lights and a woman
On a cold hospital table with her eyes shut hard
And a representative from an adoption agency
Who'd find me a "good home" in six weeks
If the scales and thermometers and tape measures
deemed me saleable.
So on this, the day of my birth
You'll pardon me if I don't feel like celebrating
