I Get To Be the One

If you’ve never heard this song, you’re going to want to grab a tissue and get ready to ugly cry. At first listening to this song I was overcome with sadness for A’s birth mom, that I was getting all of these things for this little girl that we all love so much. But, then I read the lyrics again, and I realized that with open adoption, WE, her, K, and I get to be the ones, and I really started to ugly cry. I am so, so grateful for S, choosing us to be A’s parents. I love our open adoption with her, she’s become one of my best friends and we love having her as part of our family.

“I Get To Be The One”

Well hello,
Little baby.
Your eyes have never seen the sun
You should know
Little baby
That I am the lucky one

I get to be the one to hold your hand
I get to be the one.
Through birthdays and broken bones
I’ll be there to watch you grow
I get to be the one.

Don’t feel alone now,
Little baby.
Do you hear me singing you a song
I can’t wait to show you
Little baby
How to crawl
How to walk
And how to run

I get to be the one to hold your hand
I get to be the one.
Through birthdays and broken bones
I’ll be there to watch you grow
I get to be the one.

How does someone so small
Hold my heart so tightly
I don’t even know you
I love you completely

I get to be the one to hold your hand
I get to be the one.
Through birthdays and broken bones
I’ll be there to watch you grow
I get to be the one to hold your hand
I get to be the one.
Through birthdays and broken bones
I’ll be there to watch you grow
I get to be the one.
