You Had Dreams For Me

“You had dreams for me. You wanted the best for me. And you made the only choice you could that night. You gave life to me.” – Mark Schultz, “Everything To Me”

Christian singer/songwriter Mark Schultz was placed for adoption as an infant. For most of his life, he’d had no interest in knowing more about his birth mother. His attitude was that she had “given him away” – why would he want to meet her? However, a conversation with a stranger caused him to realize that his birth mother’s choice had been a sacrifice rooted in deep love for him. He wrote this song in response to that experience.
