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

    "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.
