Email of the Day: Choosing My Daughter

Email of the Day: Choosing My Daughter

This is a lovely poem from Tova:

 

My child has a mom

Because I decided long ago

That I'd be there to raise her

I'd be there to watch her grow

 

She would learn there's nothing better

Than to have her by my side

No job could be more important

Than to have her as my pride

 

No paycheck could take her place

No person could convince me so

That someone else should do the job

Of being the mom she would come to know

 

My child has a dad

Because I decided long ago

That I would choose a man

Who would be proud to watch her grow

 

A real man that knew the importance

Of working hard so his kids would see

That they could trust in his presence

Because of him I could be me

 

My child has a real home

Never a day care will she come to know

Because I made the choices for her

So I could be there to watch her grow
