“I see you” by Veena Nankani

Dedicated to those I was privileged to mother for varying lengths of time.
Also dedicated to those in the foster care system, the adoption system and those who had traumatic childhoods.
I see you
I see you
I see you
I see you.
I know your road has not always been easy
I know that sometimes you had to pretend
I know your challenge is not over yet
I know that this will take some time
I see you.
I can’t change your past
I can’t take the pain away
I can help you in the present
We can move into your future
I won’t betray your trust
I see you.
We will work through this together
You will be okay in time
I will help you to recover
Do you know how much you are helping me – Just by being you?
In showing me your vulnerability, you are showing me myself
We’ll figure out the details
I see you.
I can see beyond what you project
I know that you are scared
I know that others let you down
But I will keep my word
Do not be afraid
I will earn your trust
But start off with some faith in me
I see you.
We will cry together
We will smile together
We will laugh together
One day we will dance together 
I see you.
You can be yourself
I already see your heart
You are truly beautiful
I can see your shine
Come out from your hiding
It is safe now
I see you.
I’ve got you
Just be you
I want you
Only you
All of you
The real you
I love you.
I see you my love, I see you.
To those that foster and adopt with love – You are my personal heroes.
Adoption is not a last resort for the barren. It is a conscious choice to go out and find your children. Let us open up our hearts and our homes to the families we choose.
