Kenny Loggins and Adoption Themes in his Music

Image
I really don't know why I've waited so long to blog about Kenny Loggins because he is  my number one favorite musical artist.  And it's not because he is handsome (which he obviously is) and it's not because he wrote and performed Footloose (because he did), it's because of his deep understanding of human emotions.

I don't believe Kenny has any connection to adoption; however there are many adoption themes in his music.  Over the years of listening to his music (not to mention the four times I've seen him in concert), I've come to realize that his story is everybody's story and that is what makes him wonderful.  I've always admired Kenny's ability to be honest, and speak his truth, even if the truths weren't popular.

One of my dearest friends, placed her daughter for adoption and she said every time she hears Forever by Kenny Loggins, she cries.  I have listened to it and studied the lyrics and I would have to say, hands down, it is one…

Dear Jenessa and Prospective and Current Adoptive Parents, Birth Parents in hiding, Nay-Saying Adoptees and the Non-Adopted who think they know more about Adoption than Me.
