CYG, Day 9: Music



The first time I heard this song, I guess it was almost what would have been Garrett's first birthday. I was in the car and all I could think about was Garrett, the adoption process we started in early 2012 and our waiting nursery even though I know "Home" isn't about kids. When we were in the midst of our GrantJaden failed adoption saga, this song especially came to life for me. I hear it from time to time on the radio and just sigh.

I asked Mike what his song was and he said that he didn't want to tell me because it's cheesy. I was like, seriously? I'm the one picking a song from American Idol! He made me promise not to laugh or roll my eyes and then told me that it's "I Can Only Imagine" by Mercy Me. Autumn asks us a lot of questions about Garrett and how old he is in Heaven and what Heaven in like. I think I've mentioned that I'd like to write some of her wilder theories into a children's book. We always, always dialog with her when she's in that mood, no matter what we're doing or feeling at the time. But, really, all we can do is imagine. Guess. Extrapolate. We just don't know. Like Mike said tonight, he can only imagine Heaven and Jesus and what it's going to be like to see Garrett again.




This blog post is for the worldwide event Capture Your Grief in honor of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. Day 9. Music: This might be hard to capture in a photograph so why not post a youtube clip of a piece of music that reminds your of your baby/ies/child/ren. Why this piece of music?
