Our Adoption

Once upon a time, in a land so far away

There lived a little family, who loved to laugh and play

And when they sat or walked or sang, they dreamed of another

Who could one day come and join them, a little sister or brother

They wanted to share the joy they had, and bring another in

To what God was doing through the love that flowed from him.

They wanted to share a story, a snuggle, and a song.

With a child who had yet to know the meaning of “belong”.

So this family prayed each night, and asked their Father above

To bring them a child, who had yet to know that love.

And so they prayed, and worked, and saved, they waited for the day

When another child would walk through the door finally to stay.

So will you help us love this one, wherever they might be

And bring them home sometime this fall to join this family.

And one day we all will laugh and dance, and sing out strong

Because God has given a new home, and made a child belong.
