powerful words

tonight, as i sat in the audience of Disneys Broadway, The Lion King (for the second time in the last 2 weeks mind you -  absolutely fantastic show) i was superfluously hit by the power of the song 'Endless Night'. Simba cries out in desperation to Mufasa's memory -
You promised you'd be there, Whenever I needed you!!


so many birthmothers are feeling lost, empty and/or hurting tonight, for a plethora of reasons.

my heart aches for you, for i, personally, am at peace, and oh how sweet it is. oh how i wish i could bestow that peace on those who feel that they are without.  I hope that someone out there somewhere, somehow, can feel my hug as you read/listen to these lyrics.
There is hope, the sun will rise.

heres a video of a performance on the Rosie O'Donnell show from back in the nineties.
here's the amazing powerful lyrics.

Where has the starlight gone?
Dark is the day
How can I find my way home?

Home is an empty dream
Lost to the night
Father, I feel so alone

You promised you'd be there
Whenever I needed you
Whenever I call your name
You're not anywhere

I'm trying to hold on
Just waiting to hear your voice
One word, just a word will do
To end this nightmare

When will the dawning break
Oh endless night
Sleepless I dream of the day

When you were by my side
Guiding my path
Father, I can't find the way

You promised you'd be there
Whenever I needed you
Whenever I call your name
You're not anywhere

I'm trying to hold on
Just waiting to hear your voice
One word, just a word will do
To end this nightmare

I know that the night must end
And that the sun will rise
I know that the clouds must clear
And that the sun will shine

I know
Yes, I know
The sun will rise
The clouds must clear

I know that the night must end
I know that the sun will rise
And I'll hear your voice deep inside

I know that the night must end
And that the clouds must clear
The sun will rise

Hi,
OMG, I'm so thankful that I found this blog. I'm a mother to a birth mother. My daughter had a beautiful baby boy last year is in open adoption. I can't wait to send her the link to your blog. It's been a year of ups and downs. My heart has ached for my daughter and I really knew of no resources to help her. Even a year later, it's hard finding support and people that understand. As a mom watching my daughter go through this has been heartwrenching. At times, it's hard to deal with the judgements of others regarding these decisions. I would love to find things for parents/grandparent who find themselves in this situation. You can only truly understand this if you have lived it. Finding you today is a Godsend. Thanks for making this blog. I'm now following you and look forward to exploring here now.
Thank you SO much
Sherri

Several years ago I began looking for my birth parents and twin brothers. I started writing the information down and it grew into a book. I requested all the adoption information from the state and to my surprise I received it. Growing up thinking you weren't loved and your birth mother walked out never to return hurts. After receiving the information from the state I finally knew the truth. I was loved! It's important for the child to know the truth. My book "Adopt Is A Powerful Word" details how I found my twin brothers and my birth parents and has all the detailed information from the state, information I feel sure they never thought I would see. As a grandmother I felt it was important to tell my story. I only hope it helps others.
