Get the tissues handy for this gorgeous video of before and after adoption photos.  Rescue and shelter groups featured include:  the German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County, the Human Society of Northeast GeorgiaPilots N PawsHall County Animal Shelter.

Here are the lyrics to When I Found You (The Adoption Song):
When I Found You
So many in the room; it overflowed
I felt so sad for all those unadopted souls
So desperately in need; but, I chose you and you chose me
And so it goes, so it goes

Somewhere along the way my heart was broken
I lost a piece but that's ok 'cause now it's open
There you were you were my choice; You gave me purpose and a voice
That swelling in my chest is love filling emptiness

When I found you I knew you were the one
In your darkest hour did you know I'd finally come?
The past is done and gone, now we're going home to make a brand new start
When I found you I found the missing piece of my heart

You're more beautiful than beauty; wild as the wind
With you I'm closer to God than I have ever been
We've been moving towards each other through endless space and time
Some say I saved your life, but, it's you that has saved mine

And when our time on earth fades into mist
We will meet each other at the Rainbow Bridge
Though it's a mystery; I know it's meant to be

Since I found you my life's forever changed
You've made me more than I could have ever been
That day I promised to always be there for you; We'll never be apart
When I found you
When I found you
When I found you I found the missing piece of my heart
