Missy Higgins, Where I Stood, is my latest adoption music related contribution. When you listen to it, do it twice.
Listen first from the frame of mind of a woman who has lost the love of her life to another woman. This framing reminds me of my daughters father, a man I was madly in love with more than half my life.
Second listening, frame it from the perspective of a first mother thinking of the adoptive mother standing where the first mom stood.
Either one works.
