The plaque, if you can't read it, says:

To My Adopted Child
I gazed upon your tiny face
and knew right from the start
that you were sent to fill
a special place within my heart ~
bedtime stories, games and laughter ~
Days of tears and fun~
Giving joy in so many ways,
your smile still brings the sun~
Love entered my life forever
when you came to be ~
child born of another ~
Sent from God to me
~ author unknown
