I have found the most beautiful poem regarding adoption. in fact; many could be used to describe our journey.
does anyone one know of poetry regarding infertility and/or donor?

here is the poem: I LOVE it!!!
LABOR OF MY HEART

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 make 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…
