The gift bequeathed, it is time to move on; but, where to go, He only knows.
A year has been spent, coming to know the loving home, where the gift is to go.
It’s a family affair on two sides of the coin; two families for one lucky baby to join.
One family will go with the baby in tow, the other left only with memories to sow.

They’ll revere her and protect, for they clearly know what they expect.
They want a baby that they cannot create. She’ll help them do it, and that my friends, is fate.
The dove sings its autumn song, and so it is said: That the way forward, is …
