Adoption Poems For Children

Here’s some more adoption poems for children that can be included in your child’s adoption lifebook. Scroll down for more adoption quotes and poems.


Tonight as you lie sleeping
For the first time in your bed,
There must be something lasting
And profound that should be said.
But as your face is gazed upon
Framed by your soft, blond hair
No words can tell or quite express
The feelings that we share.
The wait is finally over
You’re home, at last, to stay.
And there will always be the memories
Of the joy that filled this day.
With a love that’s running over
By the sight of you alone
Welcome home, dear cherished one,
At long last … welcome home!

Our family’s like a patchwork quilt,
With kindness gently sewn.
Each piece is an original,
With beauty of its own.
With threads of warmth and happiness,
It’s tightly stitched together.
To last in love throughout the years,
Our family is forever.

I would have given anything
to be the one to know
the pain of bringing you into this world
but it couldn’t be.
Though I did not bring you here
still I labored in my tears
through the long nights I prayed
you would come to me.
You are the labor of my heart Child,
you are the labor of my heart
with all my strength I prayed
till they laid you in my arms Child,
you are the labor of my heart.
Blessed be the maker
of bone of other bone.
He made flesh of my desire
and today I take you home.
You are the labor of my heart Child,
you are the labor of my heart
with all my strength I prayed
till they laid you in my arms Child,
you are the labor of my heart Child,
you are the labor of my heart.

~~ MY SONG ~~

You are the poem I dreamed of writing
The masterpiece
I longed to paint…
You are the shining star I reached for
In my ever hopeful quest
for life fulfilled…
You are my child
Now with all things
I am blessed

  1. I would like permission to use “Patchwork Quilt” in an adoption newsletter. Of whom do I ask permission and to whom do I credit?

    Hi Kathryn,

    I’m sorry, I don’t know who originally wrote it.

    I am having a family gather in May 2010, and your patchwork quilt poam was just perfect to be printed on our tote bag. This saying was the perfect thing for our family because of how close we all are. We have had so many deaths in that this was just perfect. Please tell me who I can speak too and who I should give credit too. If you can email me as soon as possible so I would really appreciate it.

    It is a great site. I work with adoptive parents and adopted children in Romania. There is little stuff to help people involved in adoption here so i decided to write a book about adoption and especially about the experience of adoption in Romania, that will hopefully help adoptive parents and adopted kids from Romania. I also have 5 kids all adopted from Romania.Can i use ideas or parts from your posts in this book? thank you.

    Hi Cori,

    Welcome to FP and thank you. That’s great that you’re writing a book, I am also going to start writing one about my experience adopting older children.

    Yes, you may use ideas from our blog – please give us credit though as When you’re done with the book, we’d love to review it for you. Smile
