Joanne, I'm a lurker (also from NY) :) I heard this song and thought of your adoption journey. The only place I could find the entire song is on youtube for someone else's adoption journey. Hope you like it.

Here are the lyrics:

We would say your name
a hundred times a day
like speaking words in faith.
With a mixture of
hope and fear and trust
we prayed for strength to wait.
And dreamed of how we'd feel the day you'd be in our arms and

Swept away,
caught up in our love.
Home to stay
you'll never be alone.
You'd be amazed
at how much you are loved
Life will never be the same when you're swept away.

What once was just a dream
is reaching up for me.
I hold her in my arms.
Lord, thank you for the way you held her all those days
that we had to be apart.
And now I see the impossible dream is holding me and I'm

Swept away
caught up in your love
home to stay
I'll never be alone
And I'm amazed
at how much I am loved
life will never be the same
I've been swept away

our lives will never be the same...

swept away caught up in our love
home to stay, you'll never be alone
