A Christmas Miracle for Evelyn

Sunday, June 10, 2012

Left behind with broken heart... Oh please don't let it be!

I thought surely no one would want me...


For my legs are not working you see...

What Mama or Papa would ever...

Want a little boy like me...

A boy who cannot walk or run...

Why surely they'd think he was no fun...

They'd think me worthless or so I thought...

Until one day a Mama came...

To my own orphanage!

She came to get a little girl...

And take her home with her!

This little girl is kind of like me...

She also cannot walk and yet...

A Mama came for her!

Do you suppose there's hope for me?

Is it possible that there just might be...

A Mom and Dad for me?

*****

Oh how I'd love to have a Mom and Dad...

Who'd look inside of me...

And see that though my legs don't work...

I do indeed have the most important part...

A heart that longs for love...


And a mind to think and understand...

I'll know if I am left behind...

I'll feel it in my very heart...

I think my heart will even break...

If no one comes for me!

*****

That Mama took some pictures...


Of my friends and I...

She said she'd try to find us Mom's and Dad's!

A tiny hope crept into my heart...

I was almost ready to cry at the thought...

That someone just MIGHT come for me!

*****

One by one my friends have been chosen...

Their Mama's found them what a joy!

They'll soon be going home!

But oh how great will be my grief...

When one by one those Mama's come...

And take my friends away...

Oh then I'll know my fears were true...

And though my friends have Mom's indeed...

No one's chosen me!


*****

I'll soon be left behind!

I don't know how I'll get along...

But I guess I'll just have to face the facts...

That it was just as I had thought...

Yes no one wants a boy like me...

My fears indeed were true!

*****

My friends have not left just quite yet...

Do you suppose before they do...

A Mom and Dad could choose me too?

If only when their Mama's come...

They could bring the news...

That a Mom and Dad will come for me...

As soon as the paperwork's done!

That news would save my anxious heart...

From breaking right in two!


Please will you be my Mama?

I need a Daddy too...

Please don't leave me here alone...

When my friends go home!

You can read what Renee (the Mama who met him) wrote about him at...


PS - It is likely that Marcus' friends' parents will not be able to tell him that he has a family even if one has chosen him by then (see Renee's post)...But that doesn't change the fact that he needs a family to choose him ASAP...  His tender heart will be so hurt and dejected when he realizes that ALL of his friends that asked for a family have been chosen and he's been left behind!  If you are in a position to adopt please consider Marcus!

  1. Everytime I see his face, my mind sings "Beautiful Boy" by John Lennon. If I could adopt, I'd bring him home.
