FOSTERING & ADOPTION

Hopes for Being Adopted – A Poem by Miss S., Third Grade

I AM

I AM A SINGER AND A DANCER.
I WONDER IF I CAN GO TO HOLLYWOOD.
I HEAR FIREWORKS GOING OFF IN THE DISTANCE
I SEE A HUGE DANCE STUDIO.
I WANT TO BE A FAMOUS DANCER.
I AM A SINGER AND A DANCER.

I PRETEND I HAVE A HUGE ROOM.
I FEEL BUGS CRAWLING ON ME.
I TOUCH MY CAT DAY AND NIGHT.
I WORRY I WON’T GET ADOPTED.
I CRY WHEN I GET SAD.
I AM A SINGER AND A DANCER.

I UNDERSTAND I SHOULD NOT LIE.
I SAY PLEASE AND THANK YOU.
I DREAM OF NEVER GROWING UP.
I TRY TO EXCEED THE EXPECTATION.
I HOPE I PASS EVERY GRADE.
I AM A SINGER AND A DANCER.
