Poster Design—Adoption

This is my latest poster design for my GD3 class.  I wanted to do a typographic portrait—but I had no idea it would turn into something quite this large!  It took me a long time to make this, and while it's not yet perfect, I need a break from it!
I'm struggling still with the "abortion" and "adoption" balance—I want you to see "adoption" as the more dominate element, but I want "abortion" to still have an impact.  It's kind of the foundation behind some of the symbolism in this piece, so it's important.  Also, can you read the text?  I know it's difficult, but I hope after a moment or two you will be able to catch the verses (there are only 2)
Feedback would be MORE than welcome on this piece—I'm leaning towards making this one of my show pieces for the semester, so I would like to perfect it before then :)

I hope you aren't really expecting anyone to get constructive criticism from anyone because you're not going to get it ... It's perfect and amazing and I can't imagine how you did it! I love the font in the verses...and how they look 3d. And yes - adoption is prominent. But then later you see the abortion.

It's really amazing and I love it. Sorry about the deleted post - too many typos and I had to fix them!
