...Someone Like YOU!

...So, a TOTALLY COOL friend of ours had us listen to the most PERFECT song yesterday! A song from VAN MORRISON... WOW!  He has got such an AMAZING voice, not to mention his lyrics are just BEAUTIFUL! ...and it was SO FUN to hear this SONG, singing right to our hearts. ♥♥ WE have been WAITING for someone like YOU! ...We don't know what you look like yet, how old you are, if you have a sister,  what your favorite color is, what you LOVE to eat, what makes you happy, what makes you sad, we don't know if you can speak any English or if you can speak at all yet, we don't know too much about you right now, really, just that you are from Ethiopia and unfortunately, you don't have a FAMILY or a HOME, someone to tuck you in bed at night, read you a story, sing to you, laugh with you, hold you, kiss your owies, comfort you, LOVE you, fix your favorite breakfast, get you dressed in the morning, put a little note in your lunch before you go to school, swing you on the swing at the park, cry with you, rock you, play with you, someone to fix your hair and tie your shoes, someone to call Mommy and Daddy...
    
...But we KNOW that God has chosen you to be a part of our FAMILY and we ABSOLUTELY know without one little teeny tiny doubt that we LOVE you TO INFINITY and BEYOND... already!!!

I've been searching a long time
For someone exactly like you
I've been travelling all around the world
Waiting for you to come through.
Someone like you makes it
All worth while
Someone like you keeps
Me satisfied. Someone exactly
Like you.
I've been travellin' a hard road
Lookin' for someone exactly like you
I've been carryin' my heavy load
Waiting for the LIGHT to come
Shining through.
Someone like you makes it
All worth while
Someone like you keeps
Me satisfied. Someone exactly
Like you.

I've been doin' some soul searching
To find out where you're at
I've been up and down the highway
In all kinds of foreign lands
Someone like you... 
I've been all around the world
Marching to the beat of a different
Drum.
But just lately I have
Realized
THE BEST IS YET TO COME...
Someone like you... 


We are WAITING patiently (kind of) :) to see your pretty face(s)! We are HOPING and PRAYING it will be SOON! We are SO SO excited for YOU to be a part of our FAMILY! ♥ 
We are gonna LOVE you FOREVER and EVER and EVER!!!

P.S. Thanks M.A. (World's BEST Hitting Instructor, ONE COOOOOL Dude and our AWESOME FRIEND) for sharing this SONG with us!! WE LOVE IT.. and YOU! ♥
