Songs Related to Adoption

If you know me, you know I love music. I love how I can put a song on and it instantly eiter fits my mood or changes my mood. Since becoming a birthmom, I’ve collected a little list of songs related to either adoption or songs related to a Mother’s love for her child. Sometimes it might not be the entire song that touches me but a particular verse or the chorus.

Now, what is YOUR favorite song related to adoption or your love for your child?


  1. Hello, I do not write to these things often but was checking things out.
    A song for me is called Broken by Linsay Haun off the sound track Movie called Broken Bridges with Toby Keith. When I first heard this song all I could do was cry cause it fit so well with me and what I had to go through.

  2. One song that gets me every time is "I will always love you" but sung by Dolly Parton. I can't listen to that song with out my eyes misting up. I also like Missing You by Amy Grant. I am sure there are more...but I just can not recall them now.

  3. One song that looks at adoption from a different perspective that I just love is "Letter To My Mother" by Edwin McCain. It's so nice to hear a child's perspective.

  4. "flower in manhattan" by the avett brothers is AN AMAZING song. i dont think it was written in the context of adoption but it really hits home for me. especially if you gave birth to a girl. i cry every time!

  5. Secret by Reba, and he would be sixteen. Not sure who songs it though. Also the prom, from gods arms to my arms to your, that they made into a song...
