about

This is a duet between a birth mother and an adoptive mother.

In 2019 I was asked to sing at the annual banquet for a pregnancy care clinic. In searching for the right song, I ended up co-writing this duet and singing it with my cousin Lisa who sang the birth mother's part and was, ironically, 8 months pregnant at the time.

All proceeds from this track will go to the Calgary Pregnancy Care Centre. www.pregcare.com

LYRICS

VERSE 1 (Birth Mother)
When I found out about you, it all felt so wrong
Choosing to give you life, I had to be strong
Unsure of your future and what I should do
I cannot keep you, I want the best for you
I cling to the promise that God will hold onto me
Now my heart is breaking as I wait to set you free

CHORUS
Child of my heart,
You have always been a part of me

VERSE 2 (Adoptive Mother)
I've prayed for this moment, I've waited so long
Yearning to meet you, and sing you your song
Perfectly made, softness to hold,
My gift from heaven, my heart overflows
As she felt you grow inside, Your life was a mystery
Now I'll watch you grow in life, As God holds your destiny

CHORUS
Child of my heart,
You have always been a part of me

BRIDGE
B: So I give you to the One who knows your name
A: And I give you to the One who formed your frame
both: And I give you all that I can give to you
B: In the end I have to give you up to Him
A: From the start I will give you up to Him

(both)
CHORUS 1
Child of my heart ,
You have always been a part of me (x2)
CHORUS 2
Child of my heart,
You will always be a part of me (x2)
