I am

Tue, 09/22/2015 - 16:46 -- sydfred

I am 

the road less traveled

funny indeed

the creation of two families

one of birth

one of adoption


I am

the one that they wanted

to have opportunities 

that they could not provide

the one they wanted

to complete our family


I am 

full of hope and optimism

stressed by

endless expectations, tests, papers

reaching for my future

wishing to stay in the present


I am 

nature vs nurture

always loved

looking for my purpose

trying to stay in focus


I am

so excited to meet my future

I have loved my past

committed to others

finding my voice

learning to speak up


I am 

always looking for adventure

a long nap, a good book

a dog to cuddle

an answer to "What if"


I am 

so many amazing experiences

so many unusual choices

One right choice
