Maybe she will look like you, talk like you, smile like you...
maybe she'll sing, paint or dance like you...
but she'll dream her very own dreams.
You've given your child so much already -
including the precious gift of life.
And through the years, you will give her so much more -
not just food and clothing but laughter, ideals and love.
You cannot give her her dreams, though, for those will be hers alone.
May they lead her to all that is beautiful in life,
and with your loving help and support,
may she make every one come true.
