"Adventures, I used to call them. I used to think that they were things the wonderful folk of the stories went out and looked for, because they wanted them, because they were exciting and life was a bit dull...But that's not the way of it with the tales that really mattered, or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have just landed in them, usually...I expect they had a lot of chances, like us, of turning back, only they didn't. And if they had, we shouldn't know, because they'd have been forgotten."

Swept away

A friend gave me a CD titled 'Spirit of Adoption', and it contains many songs that make you sob like a baby while you wait for your child to come home. One song in particular, even thinking of the song, makes me tear up. I think she likes to make me cry... as she also gave me this adorable book that is about a little bear asking his Mama all about his adoption, and its very sweet.

These are the lyrics. It was written by Geoff Moore, who took his own experience with adoption and put it to song.

"Swept Away" by Geoff Moore

We would say your name
A hundred times a day
Like speaking words in faith
And with a mixture of
Hope and fear and trust
We prayed for the strength to wait
And dreamed of how we’d feel the day
You’d be in our arms and …

Swept away
Caught up in our love
Home to stay
You’ll never be alone
You’ll be amazed
As how much you are loved
Your life will never be the same
Once you’re swept away

What once was just a dream
Is now reaching up to me
And I hold her in my arms
Father thank You for the way
You held her all the days
That we had to spend apart
And now I see the impossible dream
Is holding me and I’m …

Swept away
Caught up in our love
Home to stay
You’ll never be alone
You’ll be amazed
As how much you are loved
Your life will never be the same
Once you’re swept away
