‘Sweet Amelia’ by Sandra McCracken
A beautiful song about Kevin & Wendy Twit’s adoption of their daughter Amelia from China. Wendy Twit writes about how the song came about:
Kevin secretly copied pages of my journal last spring I think and gave it to Sandra to inspire her to turn it into a song. He got word right before Christmas that the song was finished. Sandra gave us the song last night, and of course it is such an amazing gift that I will always tresure. Amelia is a wonderful little girl. It is so busy with having three kids, that sometime I forget the amazing journey that we went on last year. I think this song takes me back to that hard time of longing and waiting for her. It is still so amazing how God has made a baby that was born in China to become so woven into our family. We can hardly remember our family without Amelia. This song reminds me what a miracle God did in bringing her to us.
