I’m dwelling on the future tonight
In our house that seems a bit too big for four.
I’m making plans and signing my name on dotted lines,
While friends in Texas buy wares
to bring our baby home.
And grandparents crochet quietly
knowing each turn of the yarn helps
a child in need.
And We work each day
and dream each day
of ways to speed the clock,
of ways to find the means
to change one life
to bring our baby home.
We is not us, we is us all
It takes you, It takes me
to change one life
And words can’t express
the gratitude felt
when you step forward,
take our hands
and join our dreams
to bring our baby home.
