If My Little Voice Could Speak
By: Shelbea Riddle -An Adopted High School Senior
10 little fingers
10 little toes
I am so cute.
But nobody knows.
Who fearfully and wonderfully made me.
He knows I am perfect.
If I could have just
One chance to say the words “I love you”
One chance to live
I would take it.
It would be my chance
To make a mistake
I want to see earth!
Heaven is awesome too…
But I want to meet my mommy and daddy.
So like mind over matter, mommy
PLEASE choose adoption
Over ending my life.
I don’t want the scary doctors to hurt me.
I can hear them convincing you this is the best decision,
It isn’t mommy.
They are brain washing you.
I want to hear your heart beat mommy!
How else will I fall asleep?
When I kick and you feel your belly,
I experience love and safety.
So keep me loved and safe, mommy.
All I want is to live.
