"Geneva's" Poem

Baby Geneva is Heading HOME!

In beautiful China,
In province Shanxi,
Lives a sweet little baby
With B b on her knees.

Beautiful baby Geneva
With sweet smile so wide,
Three wonderful siblings
Wait to be by your side.

You'll have a "twin" brother!
You're five days older than he.
Never let him forget:
You're the older, you see!

Your new state's Quarter
Will be issued in 2008.
The state's Governor got an award for
"Leadership and commitment to children's health."
I think that's just GREAT!

A river named for the state I'm in
Carves deeply through your state.
Geneva, your wonderful family
For you, can hardly wait!!

Your last name sounds like candy
A yummy candy is called Reeses!
When Geneva comes HOME
This family will have all its pieces!

Our agency has a tradition of writing a poem for each special needs family that finds a home. This is "Geneva's."

Amy,
She's darling, oh my goodness a face like a little angel.

I think most of my questions were answered by just peeking at your blog. You just made my day! The poem was incredible, something she will cherish for a lifetime.

Congratulations on a beautiful addition to your already beautiful family.

Best wishes,
Ivy and Dani Marks
