A Prayer for Birth Mothers

A heart 
A gift from God

I hold it in my arms
Pulsing neath my fingertips
Beating next to mine

It holds my hand
Walks by my side
Keeping step with me

I see it through their eyes
Hear it in their voices
Feel it amongst the hugs

Alive and warm
A steady beat
Part of you, yet mine

As I hold your heart this Mother's Day
God help me treasure every heartbeat
Always loving you through them

Happy Mother's Day!


  1. So beautiful!! Thank you so much!!!

  2. Thanks for this - I've been praying for my girls' birth moms and foster mom a lot this weekend. I wish somehow they knew just how grateful I am and how much I value their hard choice to leave the girls where they'd be found safely.
