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.

“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.”
“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.”

I created you from the imagery of my heart.

Nor the candles on a birthday cake.
Only love from the heart,
Causes a family to start.
