Playlist For The [Adoption] Ride

The adoption journey can be twisty and windy and sometimes really, really long.

Because I used to spend a whole 'lotta time on the road in my TV years, I came to really appreciate good music.

Certain songs really spoke to me during our family's journey to adopt.
So -- for music-lovers on a similar path -- here's my not-official-whatsoever playlist for the ride that is adoption:

When You Wanna Give Up:
He Said -- Group 1 Crew -->

When You're Exhausted:
Worn -- Tenth Avenue North -->

Waiting, Waiting, and More Waiting:
The Waiting -- Jamie Grace -->

Your Baby's Birthday:
A Thousand Years -- Christina Perri -->
Hope When Things Aren't Perfect:
Speak Life -- TobyMac -->
Trusting in the Midst of the Unknown
I will Follow -- Chris Tomlin -->
When You Bring Your Baby Home:
Home - Phillip Phillips -->
Post-Baby [When you can see God's writing on your family's story]:
Never Once -- Matt Redman -->
