Waiting for You

I wrote this while applying (and waiting) to adopt a child within this country. It’s my hope that it resonates with all adoptive families.

Waiting for You
Words by Lisa Redfern
Music: Traditional

You’re the child I’ll raise as mine
I’ve loved you from the start
I’ve been waiting here for you
And holding you in my heart

I can almost see your eyes
Can almost hear your voice
Someone loves you very much
But has to make a choice

Are you across the ocean wide?
Or maybe somewhere near
Wherever you will come from
Know that I’ll hold you here

Though my losses brought me here
And loss brings you to me
When we meet we’ll build our life
It’s beautiful, you will see
