this really was my experience - I really was adopted twice over ! Read more to find out how and why .

When - I - Was - A - Child -

When I was a child - I thought like a child -
But I was very - extreme -
Because - I was adopted at the age of seven -
My name was changed - my whole life
Was - radically changed - I had to
Mind my - P's and Q's - now .
I was taught elocution - such as -
Betty Botter bought some butter .....all
To make her - bitter - batter - better !
To help me speak - ' Proper ' - and -
On top of that - I was just like the little girl -
Who had a little curl - right in the middle of her forehead -
'Cos - when I was good - ' Butter ' - even the very best
That Betty had to offer - wouldn't have melted in my mouth -
But - When I was - Bad - I was more than just ' Horrid ' -
I was - Awful ! -

BUT............

God had HIS hand on my - muddled - life - and He rescued
Me from a deep - dark - pit .
He cleaned me up ....
And - He - Adopted Me - into His Family .
So - I am twice adopted -
And I am - His .


There are a lot of things that I could have done better in my life - but - the greatest thing
that has ever happened to me is - knowing that I belong to my Heavenly Father - and He will always take care of me .

God bless you all today - and always .

What is sad Terry ? At least it has a happier ending , and perhaps that's why God has given me a heart towards the broken and rejected people , because I've been there . A big God bless you today . love Stella
