Mixed Tapes Make Me Happy {adoption playlist}

Music is my thang. 
And mix tapes are my jam. 

Well, maybe I should say WERE my jam...considering we no longer live circa 1990. 
But seriously...THIS lives in my car. 

That's a lot of music. 

And since adoption and our daughter are on my mind non-stop these days,
 I've made a little playlist to help me focus on God's promise found in John 14:18: 

"I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you."

We are coming for you, baby girl. 
And in the meantime, we will trust while we wait.
