Adoption Playlist

Every adoption journey is different, you know that, but sometimes the ways we keep ourselves going through the wait can vary. Recently we came to have a new appreciation for music and the way that the lyrics can speak to us at different points along the journey. We asked some families to help us compile a list of the songs that keep them going or remind them of a specific moment or memory.
