Every Child Deserves a Home

If you have read my blog for any length of time, you know that I was adopted after spending time in the foster care system. I talk a lot about being adopted, but not much about my time in foster care of the feelings of abandonment that went along with it. I just prefer to keep some of those memories private.

I recently started listening to a new New Song CD and on it they have a song called Every Child Deserves a Home and it has touched me to the very core of my being. It was written by Eddie Carswell and Matthew West, both are amazing song writers.

Every Child Deserves a Home
To be remembered on your birthday
Feel a father’s kiss good night.
To have a mother wrap her arms around you
And say it’s gonna be alright.
These are the things we take for granted
That every child should know and love.
It’s simply heaven’s way of telling them
They are precious in this world
Precious in this world

Every child deserves a home
Every child deserves to hear the words
“You are not alone”
Every life on earth is sacred
Every heart is heaven’s own
Every child deserves a home
Deserves a home

They are out there by the millions
Hurting children without hope
Little boys and girls who need a family
That they can call their own
Now it’s up to us to help them
We can’t just close our eyes
Jesus loves the little children
And His arms are open wide

Every child deserves a home
Every child deserves to hear the words
“You are not alone”
Every life on earth is sacred
Every heart is heaven’s own
Every child deserves a home

There’s something in their faces that tells us their story
There’s something in their cry that keeps calling out,
“Don’t forget about me”
Red and yellow, black and white
They are precious in His sight
Jesus died for all the children of the world

Every child deserves a home
Every child deserves to hear the words “You are not alone”
Every life on earth is sacred
Every heart is heaven’s own
Every child deserves a home
Deserves a home……
