'Not flesh of my flesh, nor bone of my bone, But still miraculously My own. Never forget For a single minute: You didn't grow under my heart, but in it.'
Fleur Conkling was an author of songs, stories, poetry, magazine articles and children's books including the Bingity-Bangity School Bus, Billy Between and The Brave Little Duck.
This poem, however, which has gained great currency, is perhaps her most well known verse, though few may realize her authorship of it. Known variously as The Adoption Creed, The Answer to an Adopted Child, and In My Heart, it was published in the Saturday Evening Post in 1952. As a beautifullly phrased exploration of unique emotional bond, it became a most special poem for parents and children alike.
This poem has been simply engraved on an irregular tactile disc form, which can be worn as a necklace. Sterling Silver touchtone and an adjustable sterling silver chain 15" - 17 1/2".
