Music is important to me. Some songs have helped me identify and better express my feelings of anger and sadness. Others have given me hope and made me feel better. Here are twelve songs that have become sort of a soundtrack to my side of An Adopted Life. I hope you enjoy them. Feel free to share the songs that inspire you in the comments below and I may include them in a future mixtape.
