In honor of National Adoption Awareness Month, I wanted to share a bit of myself and the love I have for my family that we built through adoption. The easiest way for me to do that is through music, so I decided to record this particular song by Ben Rector as it’s a song that makes me think of my daughter, Abby.
We are a family that believes in magic—there is magic in kindness and love, and we will forever try to teach our daughter that she can change the world by tapping into the extraordinary magic that lives within her sweet spirit.
For it wasn’t until she came into our lives that we truly understood how magical this world could be. I loved the lyrics of this song before, but she gave them a much deeper meaning.
“Out of thin air you appeared in my life, like a burst technicolor in a world of black and white. When my heart was locked inside a box, you reached inside, and now I see my future when I look into your eyes.”
