Welcome to our family,
Dear child of our hearts!
Welcome to the bond of love
Of which you now are part.

Welcome to our waiting arms
That will your world enfold.
Welcome to our way of life
That will your future mold.

Welcome to our hopes and dreams,
Our faults and foibles, too,
For some of our soul-seeds, hand sown,
Will bear sweet fruit in you.
