Songs for adoption video

Does anyone have a list of songs for an adoption video. I am compiling a video of all of my daughters pictures for her first birthday. I need some songs for my video, but I can't for the life of me name some off the top of my head.

Help Please!!!

this may sound crazy but we used Little Miss Magic by Jimmy Buffet for her birthday video and it was perfect

When I did my DS video I used several songs by Steve Curtis Chapman. He dedicated an entrie album to his daughter whom he adopted from China. Here are the ones I used ~ "When Love Takes You In", "All About Love" and "I Will Be Here".

I also used "A New Day" by Celine Dion, "Have You Ever Been In Love" also by Celine Dion, "My Wish" by Raschel Flatts, "Forever Young" by Rod Stewart, "I Hope You Dance" by Lee Ann Womeck and a song strictly for DS and Daddy called "Watching You" by I think his name is Rodney Atkins.

Good Luck

I just heard this one today and it's not a perfect match, but it does work well. I think I'll be including it in a montage.

Howard Markman's Almost Home

I also like "ocean sized love" by leigh nash.

When we told our families on Christmas that we were adopting. We made a video of the three sets of referral pictures that we had received, a poem that I had written, and played the song "As long as you love me" by N'sync. I am not a N'sync fan, but that song was perfect. Not a dry eye in either house.

I am not a Savage Garden fan and as a love song I hate it, but when I hear this song from them I think of my daughter and it makes me bawl.
I Knew I Loved You
Savage Garden

from "Affirmation"

Maybe it's intuition
But some things you just don't question
Like in your eyes
I see my future in an instant
And there it goes
I think I've found my best friend
I know that it might sound more than a little crazy
But I believe

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

There's just no rhyme or reason
Only this sense of completion
And in your eyes
I see the missing pieces
I'm searching for
I think I've found my way home
I know that it might sound more than a little crazy
But I believe

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

A thousand angels dance around you
I am complete now that I've found you

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life
