To Jordan’s Birthmom
From Rhonda Baker

 You’re a woman I adore, haven’t seen you in years.
Each year on February 8, you move me to tears.
The gift you gave, sacrificial to say the least,
Love without limits, your baby boy to me released.

 I know you longed to hold him,
Rock him each night to sleep,
It’s at those times I prayed for you,
Jesus to soothe the tears you weep.
And you smile at him,
With each picture that you see.
Just know that I thank God for you,
For the son you gave to me.

 Could have kept him for yourself, you entrusted him to me,
Believing I would love him, and provide a family.
I look at all the pictures, when he passed from your arms into mine,
A lifetime of emotions, sisters in Christ our common blood line.

  I know you longed to hold him, rock him each night to sleep,
It’s at those times I prayed for you, Jesus to soothe the tears you weep.
And you smile at him, with each picture that you see.
Just know that I thank God for you, for the son you gave to me.

I know you missed his first word, first step, and day of school.
You would be so proud of him, love governs his life as the one important rule.
He gave his life to Jesus, August 31, 1997.
Same day Princess Di passed, guaranteed his spot in heaven.

  I know you longed to hold him, rock him each night to sleep,
It’s at those times I prayed for you, Jesus to soothe the tears you weep.
And you smile at him, with each picture that you see.
Just know that I thank God for you, for the son you gave to me.

You know he’s 23 today, college degree in hand.
Working to train others, the health field at his command.
Every day is a gift with him, in each serious silly way.
That’s why I want to celebrate, by thanking you on his birthday!

  I know you longed to hold him, rock him each night to sleep,
It’s at those times I prayed for you, Jesus to soothe the tears you weep.
And you smile at him, with each picture that you see.
Just know that I thank God for you, for the son you gave to me.

Love you and thank you for the choice you made 23 years ago!

  1. My dear Rhonda,
    Words can’t express the waves of emotion that coincide with the fresh set of tears streaming down my face at this moment. Today, you gave me a gift. A gift of thanks. Looking back 23 years ago today, on the day I gave birth to this beautiful boy, I stand in awe…of what The Lord has done in my life and Jordan’s. Thank you for showing him Jesus at a early age and training him up right so that when he grows old he will not depart from it. Thank you for your unconditional love to me and our beautiful son Jordan. You are amazing.
