Suggestions, please?

Tuesday, October 23, 2007
I have resumed work on the homecoming video. However, it is going to take me a long time to finish it. Right now, I am trying to find some music. I know one song we will use (I can see clearly now) because it has special meaning for our family. And I have a few others in mind. However, I am searching for more. If you have a song you think would be great for an adoption homecoming video, please comment. The video will cover a tiny bit of our family before Kate, the waiting, her referral, the China trip, homecoming and a little life at home.

Since I always have to have photos in my posts...here is Miss Kate in her new shirt from Matilda Jane. Thank you for passing this along Leslie and coordinating the order. Doesn't it look adorable?

  5. I have a good friend who adopted from China in May. She and her husband are going through a rough time with their little girl not sleeping at night. I remember you going through something similar, and wondered if you would mind telling me what you tried that might help her. I would appreciate any suggestions that might make this time easier for her. Thanks Kimber!

  9. I am glad Leslie will be sending you some CDs. She has some amazing songs. I'll try to think of some songs and will email you if I come up with anything.

    Miracle by Celine Dion is pretty. I used that for the menu of Will's DVD.

    Hope you are having a great week.

    LOVE Kate's outfit!

  10. Love the Matilda Jane shirt! Everything they have is so cute. Sarah wore her new MJ dress to church Sunday and got a lot of compliments on it. I actually ordered a cardigan from the holiday line today.

    Leslie's CDs of adoption music are great -- I'm sure you'll find all the songs you need on them. My favorite right now is "I Wish I Could Save These Moments" (it's track 8 on the 2nd CD). Good luck with the video -- I'm sure it will be worth all the time.

  15. Oh, and my good friend Glinda at 'Give Me Back My Slippers' sent me this song by Celine Dion called, If I Could. I cried through the whole song. You may love it too, for your video.

  16. Kim,
    She is the hippest of chicks in that outfit! I LOVE it! I want to buy Ainsley the entire catalog it is all so fun!!!! But, after seeing that shirt on Kate, Ruby may have to own it too if it is still available! I saw your post about Kate not wanting to wear the hat. Miss Ruby is also in that camp!!! Thanks for sharing. She is precious!
    Hugs,
    Diana

  17. P.S.
    "Swept Away" by Geoff Moore is my favorite since Geoff is singing about waiting for his precious Annie from China during the wait. It is the one I used for Ruby's...

  22. I just love the cute smock tops with the jeans. Mia wears little smock tops all the time and always gets comments. I just love Kate's top. It is adorable. I have never looked at the Matilda Jane clothes. I will do so becuase I just love kate's shirt. She looks adorable.

    I love the 3rd Day song about Chirstmas without their baby from China- I think it is called "Merry Christmas-- not sure about that but that song makes me cry each time I hear it. It hits so close to home!!

  23. We really enjoy your blog - thanks for sharing your adoption story. The song that has meant the most to us with our 2 adopted kids has been, "Somewhere Out There" from "An American Tale." It has a great message. Here are the lyrics:

    Somewhere out there
    Beneath the pale moonlight
    Someone's thinking of me
    And loving me tonight

    Somewhere out there
    Someone's saying a prayer
    That we'll find one another
    In that big somewhere out there

    And even though I know
    How very far apart we are
    It helps to think we might be wishing
    On the same bright star

    And when the night wind
    Starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
    It helps to think we're sleeping
    Underneath the same big sky

    Somewhere out there
    If love can see us through
    Then we'll be together
    Somewhere out there
    Out where dreams come true

    And even though I know
    How very far apart we are
    It helps to think we might be wishing
    on the same bright star

    And when the night wind
    Starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
    It helps to think we're sleeping
    Underneath the same big sky

    Somewhere out there
    If love can see us through
    Then we'll be together
    Somewhere out there
    Out where dreams come true...

  24. Kim, I hope you don't mind and I'm sure you won't since this is for charity. I just wanted to mention the blog makeover contest here. Hope that's ok :)

    I am hosting a contest (you can see the info at blogsbydanielle.blogspot.com) for a free blog makeover. One lucky winner will win a free blog makeover after making a donation to half the sky.

  26. I love the song "You are so beautiful..
    You are so beautiful, to me. You're everything I hoped for, you're everything I need..."

    I sang this to C in the hospital when he was born.
