Based on the Chinese Proverb: “An invisible red thread connects those
destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstances."
written for the Delaware Valley chapter of Families with Children from China.

lyrics

AT 3AM THE OTHER NIGHT
AN EASTERN WIND KICKED UP OUTSIDE
AT FIRST IT FELT LIKE JUST A STORM
NOW I’M SURE THAT’S, WHEN YOU WERE BORN

WE’VE DREAMT AND WAITED FOR THE DAY
WHEN YOU WILL FINALLY COME TO STAY
AND FILL OUR HEARTS AND SHARE OUR HOME
AND FEEL OUR LOVE AS WE ALL GROW

INTO A FAMILY, INTO A LIFE
INTO A PLACE OF LOVE AND SHELTER YOU’LL ARRIVE
FROM SINGLE STRANDS INTO A BRAID
A THREAD OF DESTINY CONNECTED US TODAY

WHAT BEGINS AS JUST A THREAD
WILL WEAVE A TAPESTRY OF FRIENDS
AND WRAP YOU IN SUPPORT AND HOPE
AND GUIDE US WITH THE STRENGTH OF ROPE

INTO A FAMILY, INTO A LIFE
INTO A PLACE OF LOVE AND SHELTER YOU ARRIVED
FROM SINGLE STRANDS INTO A BRAID
A THREAD OF DESTINY CONNECTS US ALL TODAY

THE WORLD IT SPINS JUST LIKE A SPOOL
CONNECTING ME, CONNECTING YOU
INTO LIFE’S FABRIC WE’RE ALL TOSSED
OUR THREADS ALL WOVEN INTO CLOTH

INTO A FAMILY, INTO A LIFE
INTO A PLACE OF LOVE AND LAUGHTER YOU’VE ARRIVED
FROM SINGLE STRANDS INTO A BRAID
A THREAD OF DESTINY CONNECTS US ALL TODAY
A THREAD OF DESTINY CONNECTS US ALL TODAY
