    The first graders were discussing a picture of a family. One little boy in the picture had different color hair from the other family members. One child suggested that he was adopted.

    A little girl said, "I know all about adoptions because I was adopted."

    "What does it mean to be adopted?" asked another child.

    It means," said the girl, "that you grew in your mommy's heart instead of her tummy."

    A wise man taught me how to tell time, just for me to be late.
    He taught me how to talk, just for me to spend more time talking to my friends than to him.
    He taught me how to drive, just for me to take the car any chance I get.
    He helped me with my homework, just for me to tell him he's wrong.
    He taught me how to play football, just for me to play with anyone but him.
    He taught me how to cook, fish, and set up a tent, just so I can spend summers camping with friends.
    He taught me how to be strong, just for me to think I don't need him.
    He showed me the 'good music', just for me to go to concerts without him.
    He told me it's okay to make mistakes, as long as you don't make the same one twice, just for me to continue anyway.
    I'm sorry Daddy, for taking everything you showed me, and using it to block you out.

    The one who raises a child is called a father. Not the one who helped make it.

    when i grow up...and i see my daughter looking out the window all by herself, or sit at dinner quiet the entire time, lie on the couch staring at the ceiling, or even sitting outside watching the clouds move...im gonna talk to her
    because when i did that all day...and all i wanted to do was talk to someone...i couldnt stop wishing that my parents would walk up to me and ask me whats wrong instead of just walking on by.

    Always smile back at little children. To ignore them is to destroy their belief that the world is good.

    When you have a child you are so proud of every new thing they learn. You can hardly wait till they learn how to walk and learn how to talk, and once they do you spend the next several years telling them to sit down and be quiet.

    How can you describe the love of a child? It's not like your family, you loved them before you can remember. It's not like your partner, that was a process, you learned to love them. But a child? The moment you saw it for the first time it was awe inspiring and you knew...you knew from this moment on you'd laydown your life for this small being. You discovered the truth about love at first sight..

    Sometimes I know the words to say,
    Give thanks for all you've done
    But then they fly up and away,
    As quickly as they come.

    How could I possibly thanks you enough,The one who makes me whole
    The one to whom I owe my life,The forming of my soul.

    The one who tucked me in at night,The one who stopped my crying,
    The one who was the expert,At picking up when i was lying.

    The one who saw me off to school,And spent the days alone,
    Yet Magically produced a smile,As soon as I came home.

    The one who makes such sacrifices,To always put me first
    Who lets me test my broken wings In spite of how it hurts.

    Who paints the world a rainbow When it's filled with broken dreams Who explains it all so clearly, When nothings what it seems

    Are there really any words for this? I find this question tough...
    Anything i want to say, Just doesnt seem enough.

    What way is there to thank you, For your heart,your sweat,your tears,For ten thousand little things you've done,For oh-so many years.

    For changing with me as i changed, Accepting all my flaws,
    Not loving 'cause you had to, But loving "just because."

    For never giving up on me,When your wits had reached their end,
    For always being proud of me For being my best friend.

    And so i come to relize, The only way to say,
    The only thank you that's enough,
    Is clear in just one way.

    Look at me before you,
    See what I've become,
    Do you see yourself in me?
    The job that you have done?

    All your hopes and all your dreams,
    The strength thats no one sees,
    A transfer over many years,
    Your best was past to me.

    Thank you for the gifts you gave,
    For everything you do
    But thank you mommy most of all,
    For making dreams come true.

    Love,
    Your Daughter
