Brightly colored shapes scatter through the yard
Announcing someone’s special day
There are several inside, brightening the wooden room
A few outdoors, to boast to the world
Of a small little girl’s arrival
Into her new world of America.
Cakes and small packages wait
With pink and yellow ribbons swinging freely;
This little girl would smile, from all the cuddles and laughter
The smooching, the bouncing, and overwhelming happiness
Of the wonderful miracle of adoption.
