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
