A Half A World Away

A half a world away,
Sometimes it seems we're so far apart.
But a half a world away,
Is not too far for a journey of the heart.
My little one, my precious joy,
I'm waiting for you.
My precious daughter, my little girl,
I know you're waiting too.
A half a world away,
A child waits for a family of her own.
While a half a world away,
A family waits to come bring her home.
My little one, my precious joy,
I'm whispering a prayer.
My precious daughter, my little girl,
I hope to soon be there.
A half a world away,
So many months of waiting are past.
A half a world away,
So many miles to bring you home at last.
My little one, my precious joy,
You're finally home to stay.
My precious daughter, my little girl,
We celebrate this day.
Knowing we will no longer be
a half a world away.

The Gift of Life

I didn't give you the gift of life, but in my heart I know.
The love I feel is deep and real, as if it had been so.
For us to have each other is like a dream come true!
No, I didn't give you the gift of life, life gave me the gift of you.

If we had it to do over again, adoption is what we'd choose.
We got more than we hoped for, the day we adopted you.
For you have given us more in life, than we could ever want or need.
You made our house into a home, and made our family complete.
We love you more than life itself, for all the things you say and do.
And if we had to do it over again, you'd be the only one we'd choose.
