Video: Adoption Song Perfectly Expresses the Feelings of Hopeful Adoptive Parents

Ben Nelson's "Come Home" hits the nail on the head.

Denalee Chapman July 28, 2016

Ben Nelson’s adoption song, Come Home, shouts the feelings of many adoptive parents.  Most especially, those adoptive parents who are still waiting to welcome their child home can identify with the feelings expressed in Ben Nelson’s words set to a beautiful melody.  “You may not have my eyes or your mother’s sweet smile. But you have our hearts.” Distance can be a killer—whether it’s a geographical distance or emotional distance, not even knowing who your child is yet. But all hoping to adopt can understand the feelings expressed: “If home is where the heart is, come home darlin’. And if love crosses oceans, your mom and I were hopin’ you’d come home.”
