Poem: "Written Not in Blood"
This poem came out of the June 4, 2019 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired and sponsored by Shirley Barrette. It also fills the "Baby / Child" square in my 6-1-19 card for the Cottoncandy Bingo fest.

"Written Not in Blood"

Adoption is an oath
written not in blood
but in trust.

It is a promise
to be there through
all of life's ups and downs.

It is a tree watered
with sweat and tears.

Blood may be thicker,
but water is life.
