I've always been a music lover. Now, I can't sing worth beans, play a note or play any sort of instrument but I still love music. As a commuter, I get to plug myself into my iPod and listen to all my favourite songs everyday. Sometimes I think that songs have a very special message just for me. When my older brother passed away one song that was constantly on the radio was "You'll be in my heart" by Phil Collins. To this day whenever I hear that song it brings tears to my eyes as I remember my brother.
The day we got the news that we got Ministry approval I was walking to the train station plugged into my iPod as usual and the first song to play was "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey and the second song to play was "We Are Family" by Sister Sledge. A sign? Maybe...hopefully.
I've been thinking as well about songs that future parents like us can use (e.g. adoptive parents) because usually the wait to become parents is so much longer and much more anticipated. So here is the list I've come us with for now:
I Knew You Were Waiting for Me: George Michael and Aretha Franklin (my personal favourite)
Dreams Come True: Frozen Ghost
What a Wonderful World: Louis Armstrong
In My Daughter's Eyes: Martina McBride
I Hope You Dance: Lee Ann Womack
I Knew I Loved You: Savage Garden
There Can Be Miracles: Whitney Huston and Mariah Carey
When I See You Smile: Bad English
Does anybody have any others?
