Will You Be My Family?

This is the picture we used for Autumn’s adoption announcement.

Here’s the poem we put on the front.

Will You Be My Family?

Will you take my picture?
Will you take my side?
Will you take the pain away
I’ve tried so hard to hide?

Will you watch me play in goal
In foul or freezing weather?
Could we spend all Christmases
And holidays together?

Will you pack a lunch for me?
Sometimes hold my hand?
Can we be just ordinary?
Do you understand?

When I throw a tantrum
Will you promise not to pack?
If I learn to love you
Will you try to love me back?

Will we see the funny side?
Laugh when times get tough?
We will be a family
That will be enough.

Lindsay MacRae
