Not flesh of my flesh
nor bone of my bone
but still miraculously my own.

Never forget for a single minute
you didn't grow under my heart
but in it!

Half the World Away

Tammy Cochran, a country music star, has a new album coming out on Tuesday (6/16) entitled 30 Something and Single. Tammy had set out to adopt a baby girl from Guatemala, but was sadly caught up in a grueling and complicated adoption scandal. Discouraged but determined, Tammy pursued a second adoption and successfully adopted a now 3-year old boy, Shawn Alan Cochran, from Guatemala who came home in 2007. Tammy wrote the song, "Half The World Away (Shawn’s Song)," while waiting a long two years for her son to come home from Guatemala. You can read more about her story at I've not read the lyrics yet nor heard the song, but am anxious to do so.
