THE ADOPTION


DECEMBER THE 20TH 2006 WAS A WONDERFUL DAY
LANE BECAME OUR LEGAL SON FOREVER AND ALWAYS
THE JUDGE HE LOOKED AT ME AND SAID WHY DO YOU WANT THIS BOY,
I SAID BECAUSE YOUR HONOR HE BRINGS MY LIFE LOTS OF JOY.
YOU SEE WE HAVE LOVED HIM FOR SUCH A LONG, LONG TIME
SO PLEASE YOUR HONOR WON'T YOU MAKE HIM MINE.

HE SAID I DON'T SEE ANY REASON WHY I CAN'T GRANT YOU'RE REQUEST
SO I'LL LEAVE HIM WITH YOU BECAUSE I THINK THAT IS WHAT'S BEST.
HE SAID FROM NOW ON YOU'RE SON IS HOW HE'LL BE KNOWN
AND I KNOW THAT YOU'LL LOVE HIM AND GIVE HIM A GOOD HOME.
I SAID YES WE WILL YOUR HONOR, AND I GAVE HIM A BIG HUG,
BECAUSE HE MADE US A FAMILY WITH THIS LITTLE BOY THAT WE LOVE.

IT'S FINALLY OVER THOUGH WE'VE WAITED 2 YEARS
IT'S LEGAL AT LAST I FOUGHT BACK THE TEARS
WHAT A WONDERFUL PRESENT WITH CHRISTMAS 5 DAYS AWAY
DECEMBER THE 20TH 2006 I ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT DAY
BECAUSE ALL I WANTED UNDER MY CHRISTMAS TREE
WAS TO BE A FAMILY, TIM, LANE AND ME
