|The Shore of Dreams!
|Thank you Dear God,
for letting me find Vincent this day.
I walked the city streets tonight searching, looking for something!
I felt distraught and so alone.
I have had so much despair since I lost my baby,
and though the others have tried to help me and tried to
what I was going through,
nothing made a difference.
I missed my baby so much,
and I didn’t think anything
or anyone could help me find my way.
Then like a miracle, I heard a cry!
A helpless cry
and as I searched through the refuse,
I found a baby!
He had been left inside the dumpster at St Vincent’s hospital.
As I scooped him up in my arms,
I felt his helplessness,
and I knew he needed me.
I don’t know why his Mother left him there,
I don’t know how she could have left this beautiful little boy,
when I would have done anything to save my own.
Nevertheless, for whatever the reason,
you led me to him.
Many say I saved his life tonight by finding him,
but in truth, he saved mine.
As I sit here within my chamber,
and I watch him sleeping in my arms,
I feel my heart swell with love…so much love.
Already, I love Vincent as if he were my own,
yes, I named him Vincent
in honor of the place he was found.
I shall cherish him,
and love him for all of my days,
and I thank you for this miracle
on this very sweet, bitter cold, cold night.
