"My Forever Family" is A Song For Children Who Are Hoping, Dreaming, And Waiting For their own Forever Family.

hey guys,

I thought I'd share one of my newest songs with you, I hope it touches you, let me know if it does

ande

"My Forever Family" is the kind of song where you need to know the purpose-of-the-song to fully appreciate it.

In a nutshell, we wrote "My Forever Family" to express the heart wish of hard-to-adopt children who are waiting for a family to adopt them, to have their own "Forever Family."

My Forever Family
written by Tommy Byrd and Ande Rasmussen

In my life I've
Never known
Where it is
That I belong
Maybe you could
Be that place for me
This I wish
This I pray
This I hope
And dream some day
I will find my forever
Family

Chorus
Take a look at me
There's so much to see
Who I am and all I can be
You can't change the world
But you can change mine for me
Take a look in your heart and see
If there's a place there for me
Could we be a forever family
Could we be a forever family

A day becomes
A week so fast
And Soon another
Year has passed
And I'm still here
Waiting hopefully
Someday soon
I just know
Like the dream
I can't let go
I will find my forever
Family

Chorus Repeats

In my life I've
Never known
Where it is
That I belong
Maybe you could
Be that place for me
This I wish
This I pray
This I hope
And dream some day
I will find my forever
Forever Family

That's a beautiful song, Ande.
I really didn't need to shed any tears at this
stage of my life (that's another story) but
I'm not sorry I visited the site and listened to
(as opposed to just heard) the song.
Thanks

Ande,

I am a crier at both beautiful things, sad things and things about hope. I delivered a few buckets here on this most beautiful song of yours. This tells me so much about your heart.
