I’ve been busy lately working on a new recording. Since we adopted Deacon back in May 2007, I’ve been quietly reflecting on the whole journey. The whole process left a huge impact on me. This recording is my expression of what our adoption means to me.
I’m calling it the “Family” EP. There are 5 songs – all written by me. “Goodbye” is written from the perspective of Deacon’s birth parents. I tried to put myself in their shoes and write a song about it, and this is what came out. “Help Me Seek Your Face” is a song about surrendering what you think you want and letting yourself be carried off by what God has in store. “Music” is my attempt at capturing the story of how Deacon was found in front of a music school in Ethiopia. “Orphan” is a rocking version of Micah 6:8. “Hello” is a song about the day we met Deacon.
