As your names go from the old and to the new, this is my promise, my vow to you.
I will honor and respect your life before me and speak kindly with grace, your biological mother and past that you’ve seen.
As you have endured and struggled in life, please know from my heart that I will now give you mine. My life you can have as a place of safe harbor, a cover and shelter, it’s yours, my life forever. My everyday, I give it to you, when you need my strength because you are blue.
Some days will be hard, we cannot skip, but when they are tough I’ll pull you close with my grip. You’ll be my love, my little companion, my strong little dude, my little loose canon.
When you need me I’ll be there, you’ll never be alone; I’m with you my sweet little bear wherever you roam. You will have questions about your past and I vow to be honest, for I know that is best, this to you I do promise. But if you feel different, or broken inside, just remember I am yours and in me you can hide.
For all of your years, when big or when little, just know mommy’s here, to hold your heart for now and for forever.
