"HE'S MADE US A FAMILY"

Verse 1
I loved you from the start,
I wanted to be a part of you,
To share your life, to share your dreams,
To help them all come true.
But something held me back,
It seemed so hard to face the fact,
That the little child who held your hand
Would need my loving, too.
It really seemed impossible
To love him as much as you.
Yes, I could clearly see, the love I'd need,
Couldn't come from me.

Chorus 1
I would need a special love
For you and for your little one,
A caring father's love,
As if he were my own.
That's something only God could do,
To make all of our dreams come true.
He can take our separate lives
And make us one,
He can make us a family.-

Verse 2
The moments we three shared
Helped us see how much we cared,
Each day that passed just seemed to bring us
Closer than the last.
I watched him as he walked,
his little smile when he talked,
I could see the things I loved in you
Reflecting in him, too.
As I looked into his eyes,
I began to realize,
That this love so special God was giving,
He was making us one.

Chorus 2
Oh, we need that special love
That God has for the little ones.
A parent's tender love,
As if they are our own.
Let's show His love in all we do,
To make all of our dreams come true.
He can take our separate lives
And make them one,
He can make us a family.

Verse 3
And now as time's gone by,
I love this love I feel inside.
He's come to be as much my own
As any one we'll have.
And though he wasn't "mine,"
With the passage of time,
I've learned to love and understand
This little one who calls me "Dad."

Chorus 3
Oh, we need that special love
That God has for the little ones.
A parent's tender love,
For each one of His own.
That's something only God could do,
To make all of our dreams come true.
'Cause He took our separate lives
And make us one,
He's made us a family.
