I was not there the first time you laughed.
I missed the first bottle, I missed the first bath.
I did not witness your first steps.
Your growing so big without me.
I hope I will be there to teach you to trust.
You'll learn to speak my mother tongue.
You won't be adopted when you're young
but you'll know the love of a family.
God has not forgotten every tear
you have cried alone my waiting child.
And I have not forgotten that you are there.
My days would be empty without you.
