Pattern Pick of the Day: Legacy of an Adopted Child by Artistic Needle

I find that there are not a lot of samplers and designs that focus on adoption, so this really grabbed my attention:

Legacy of an Adopted Child by Artistic NeedleLegacy of an Adopted Child by Artistic Needle available at 123stitch.com

“Once there were two women who never knew each other. One you do not remember. The other you call mother. Two different lives shaped to make yours one. One became your guiding star, the other became your sun. The first gave you life, and the second taught you to live it. The first gave you the need for love, the second was there to give it. One gave you a nationality, the other gave you a name. One gave you the seed of talent. The other gave you aim. One gave you emotion. The other calmed your fears. One saw your first sweet smile, th other dried your tears. One gave you up, it was all that she could do. The other prayed for a child and God led her straight to you. And now you ask me through your tears, the age old question through the years. Heredity or environment – which are you the product of? Neither my darling, neither – just two different kinds of love.”
