All I Really Want for Christmas

We had the interview for our home study yesterday and it went really well!! I can’t believe the home study is practically over – it’s been so long since we started the home study process again…. So, in honor of our next adoption and the home study being nearly done, I decided to post the lyrics to a song. Yes, it is a Christmas song, but Christmas is coming up, so I thought it’d be okay. I listened to this song a lot last year and almost cried the first time I heard it. : )

Well, I don’t know if you remember me or not
I’m one of the kids they brought in from the home
I was the red-haired boy in an old, green flannel shirt
You may not have seen me; I was standing off alone

I didn’t come and talk to you ’cause that’s never worked before
And you’ll probably never see this letter, anyway
But just in case there’s something you can do to help me out
I’ll ask you one more time

All I really want for Christmas is someone to tuck me in
A shoulder to cry on if I lose, shoulders to ride on if I win
There’s so much I could ask for, but there’s just one thing I need
All I really want for Christmas… is a family

Well, I guess I should go ahead and tell you now
If it’s really true about that list you have
Somehow I always seem to end up in a fight
But I’m really trying hard not to be bad

But maybe if I had a brother or a dad to wrestle with
Maybe they could teach me how to get along
And from everything I’ve heard, it sounds like the greatest gift on earth
Would be… a mom

All I want for Christmas is someone who’ll be here
To sing me happy birthday for the next 100 years
And It’s okay if they’re not perfect or even if they’re a little broken
That’s alright, ‘Cause so am I

Well, I guess I should go, it’s almost time for bed
Maybe next time I write you I’ll be at home

‘Cause all I really want for Christmas is someone to tuck me in
Tell me I’ll never be alone, someone whose love will never end
Of all that I could ask for, well, there’s just one thing I need
All I really want for Christmas is a family

  1. Thank you SO much! Waiting is the hardest part… knowing any day we could get a phone call, but, then again, knowing it could be several months. : P Either way, we'll make it somehow!- Eowyn
