Quotes About Adoption

My kids & I love adoption quotes. Here’s some that would be great for an adoption lifebook or maybe stenciled or framed on a child’s wall. If you know any other quotes about adoption, please share them in a comment.

-Bob Constantine

Every baby needs a lap.”
– Henry Robin

“I didn’t give you the gift of life,
But in my heart I know.
The love I feel is deep and real,
As if it had been so.
For us to have each other
Is like a dream come true.
No, I didn’t give you The gift of life,
Life gave me the gift of you.”
– Unknown

“Adoption is when a child grew in its mommy’s heart instead of her tummy.”

“Not flesh of my flesh, nor bone of my bone,
but still miraculously my own.
Never forget for a single minute,
you didn’t grow under my heart, but in it.”
– Unknown

“Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother.”

I created you from the imagery of my heart.

Blood, a family does not make,
Nor the candles on a birthday cake.
Only love from the heart,
Causes a family to start.

  11. I love reading these quotes! As an adoptive mother of 3 they came in very handy when we first brought them into our home 5 years ago. I now use them on my FB page since I know work for an adoption agency and provide support group meetings for adoptive and waiting to adopt families! Thank You!

    I was once told by my parents, “Don’t let people tease you because you are adopted.” We were told to tell them,”We are more special because we were chosen not just born to that family.” My twin brother and I were adopted together.So in other words, “The adopted children are more special than other children because we are chosen by our parents.”
