Praying for Ansley

More sharing!

You all have to listen to this song! It is the song my sister put on the video link below and I just CAN NOT listen to it without crying. Sometimes because I am remembering how ridiculously hard the waiting was to find and meet my daughter!! For those of you still waiting, you can totally relate, I know! For those with their precious children already home, you remember and it was hard!! When I'm not remembering those harder, sadder times of her half way around the world without a mommy... I am crying tears of joy for the blessing she is to me and Matthew. I just can't explain it - but I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!! It is an awesome song.

This song is being sold for a mere $1.50 to fund his adoption of his daughter! What a great idea. I wish I had the idea, or the voice to sing it.

Check out this site and purchase it and enjoy!

Here are the lyrics - even reading them makes me cry. :) What an awesome song!
This is bigger than nations.
Something too big for borders is happening here.
This is more than relations.
Something thicker than blood is pulling us near.

Somewhere there is a hand that needs another to hold,
And here I am with my hand empty.
Across an ocean a cheek needs a good-night kiss,
And these words are the kiss I’m sending.

I am waiting for you, you are waiting for me,
there is nothing but time between us.
I’ve never met you but you are all I can see.
I’m just praying that you can feel this.

A tiny heart beats inside your little chest
and every beat is in step with mine.
If I could open my heart like a locket,
a tiny picture of you is what we would find.

Every morning I pray for your safety,
And every night I ask for your peaceful sleep.
And every morning when you wake wherever you are
is another day closer to me.

I am waiting for you, you are waiting for me,
there is nothing but time between us.
I’ve never met you but you are all I can see.
I’m just praying that you can feel this, too…

Everybody around the world sing “I need somebody to love”…
From me to you, wherever you are, I am coming for you, I am coming with love…

I am praying for you there waiting for me.
Ten thousand miles is only a day.
When the sun sets on you it rises on me.
One day closer that you’ll come home to stay.

I am waiting for you, you are waiting for me,
there is nothing but time between us.
I’ve never met you but you are all I can see.
I’m just praying that you can feel this.
