Our newest fundraiser is releasing a song I wrote a long time ago when we first began this adoption journey. Not knowing anything about our daughter, and not many tangible ways to connect with the process of adoption at that point, I wrote. A while later, my wife’s brother helped me record and develop the song a bit more. I’m incredibly thankful for his help, and everyone who’s helped as we’ve waited and prayed. We continue to look forward to what God has in store!
I’ve written about the song itself before, but here are the notes officially listed with the song, where you can purchase it on CD BABY.COM!! (Feel free to share any of the links on this site with friends and family and even enemies who you think might enjoy it! Every dollar helps us to bring her home!!)
“This song was written as my wife and I began the adoption process of a precious little girl. Over three years into the process, we continue to wait and pray patiently. We hope this will also help with our fund-raising efforts.
The heart of the song connects with parents everywhere who want to reach out in love to a child in need of a home and family. Whether that child is nearby, or separated by oceans, they deserve to know they are loved. It also connects with the heart of a God who has promised we will not be left as orphans ourselves.
Even as the song cries out, “Bring You Where I Am”, the emphasis is not so much on physical location, as it is a yearning to bring the child near. The heart of a parent who wants to hold a child, one who needs to be held, in their arms. This is God’s heart for humanity, and He has promised He will return to make all things new. Our lives are to echo that love, and reveal that heart of God to a humanity that often forgets our identity as “Beloved Child”…
