#NationalAdoptionAwareness Month. #Music
When it comes to processing my grief, listening to music is one of my coping skills. Music has always been a way for me to release my emotions regardless if it was for grief, being happy or whatever. Some of the songs that hit home for me for my adoption journey are: I Will Always Love You by Dolly Parton, Everything to Me and Remember Me by Mark Schultz. One song that has always been one of my favorite (before and after placement) is, “Say Once More” by Amy Grant from her Lead Me On album. While it was written when she and Gary Chapman were still married…I can relate to most of the lyrics.
“Let me say once more that I love you, Let me say one time, maybe two, That I love the way that you love me, And I wish I knew more of you.
Tell me that time can’t erase, This look of love on your face.Let me say once more that I need you, One more time or just maybe two. Oh, my life will always be richer, For the time I’ve spent here with you.”
A birthmother always wants to do is remind her little one that she loves them and that she is choosing to place because she knows it is the right choice at that time. She is there to memorize every little thing about child before she leaves the hospital without her newborn.
