Songs for your timeline journey

The wait during your adoption is a rollercoaster…and one thing I have loved during our wait is MUSIC. Here’s a list of songs that have become a part of our journey. With the help of iTunes, I bought these and this is my adoption playlist that I can listen to in the car, during quiet times and share with friends who are waiting with me. I arranged my songs in order of our journey—my eyes being opened to the Orphan crisis, our hearts wanting to do something, opening our hands and hearts for the Lord to use us, the wait for our child, going through a time of grieving for the birth mother, and dreaming of our time together at last. Feel free to copy this list–scoot your boot right over to iTunes and make yourself a rockin’ cd to get you through your journey as well. This one will rock your face off;)

I love this list! Thank you for sharing! Songs like these comfort and speak to my heart during this journey also! I would also HIGHLY recommend Casting Crowns, “So Far to Find You”…it is amazing and was written based on their experience adopting their daughter from China. I think you’d like it 🙂

I am visiting over from Traded Dreams. 🙂 This is such a great list! This week we heard a new adoption song on the radio – “Kings and Queens” by Audio Adrenaline, it’s our new favorite!!
