They bring their child to me
and hope I'll come to know.
How much their child means to them,
their trust in me bestowed.

They bring their child to me
with love and hope and pride,
looking for a helping hand,
a teacher who will guide.

They bring their child to me,
and our partnership is clear:
To nurture and allow to bloom
a life we both hold dear.

They bring their child to me,
a step toward letting go
and trusting in our special plan
to help the child grow.
