    One Drop by Plumb became my anthem about two months before our little guy came to us. Such a joyful, promising song.

    Oh I love Matt Hammitt. All of Me is one of my favorites.

    What a great list! Lots of these are songs that have held me through tough fostering times, but some are new and I’ll have to hunt them down. I’d also add “Prayers for this Child” by Sara Groves. So so good and appropriate for the fostering journey. I also like “Haven’t Met You Yet” by Michael Buble when we’re in stage of waiting for our next placement.
