Our family tree

We’ve added to our family tree

A stronger one to make

A child from another plant

Has become our new namesake.

Just as a limb is grafted

From one tree to another,

It alters and improves the plant

Making it, uniquely, like no other.

Our family tree has been improved

Adoption made this so.

For love, much more than bloodlines,

Makes us thrive and grow.

We chose to share our life and love

And all the joys to come

Our “family tree” has blossomed

With the arrival of our cherished one.
