Amos Story...Aaron Ivey

If you’re adopting and waiting right now, this song by Aaron Ivey may both bring comfort, hope and some tears.

Here are a few comments from the ABBA fund blog on the story behind the song…

The most powerful song for me is “Amos Story” – about their son they
are adopting in Haiti. If you know Haiti you know that not many
adoptions are happening. Their son is there waiting for them. They are
able to go visit but they are waiting on the government to process
paperwork. It has been a long and incredibly difficult process. I know
only a small taste of that as we wait to bring our son home from
Uganda. I love these lines:

Another photograph to wrestle in my head
Another sleepless night on concrete featherbed
These thoughts of you like bullets to my soul
We’ve got to find a way to get you home

I’ll find a way to get you here
If it takes my fleeting breath
Another sunrise hits the ground
And it’s a dark lonely sight
Lightyears away I hope you know
There is somebody searching
For the way to get you here
dog days of summer movie
I will get you here

Throw the clocks away and run out to the street
We’ll fly to distant clouds where it’s just you and me
A day will come when all of this is gone
You’ve got to find a way to believe

I’ll find a way to get you here
If it takes my fleeting breath
Another sunrise hits the ground
And it’s a dark lonely sight
Lightyears away I hope you know
There is somebody searching
For the way to get you here
I will get you here

Close your eyes and dream of a better day with me
As angels hold you tight, may you sleep in peace tonight
So dream, dream, dream my child
Hear the whisperings of hope
It’s a song that you can sing, as you sleep in peace tonight
