Michael McLean has written songs from all angles of the adoption triad. This one was the first, but he followed it with a song from the adoptive parents' perspective, and then a song from the adopted child's perspective.
When we were paper pregnant, my mother attended a concert of Mr. McLean's. She pushed her way to him after the show and told him that her daughter was waiting to adopt and would he take some pass-along cards because he probably had several connections with fans who heard his music and were moved to consider adoption. He declined at first, saying this wasn't something he did. But if you know my mom, she doesn't take no for an answer very easily. She persisted and Mr. McLean accepted the cards. I don't know if anything every came from that transaction, but I think it's pretty cool anyway.
