"No Double Yellow Line", Cindy Foote - CD Review & Giveaway

By Barry Westman on June 08, 2011

Cindy Foote recently released a 7 song EP called “No Double Yellow Line”, inspired by three international adoption journeys taken by Cindy and her husband Billy Foote (“You Are My King”, “Sing To The King”, “You Are God Alone”).

The Footes have adopted three girls: one from China, one from Ethiopia, and the other from Haiti. Each song on this EP is a window into their family story of adoption, with some moving you to tears, and others moving you to action. This is Cindy’s debut album as a songwriter, but more importantly, she says, it’s an expression of her heart for adoption.

From the very first song, “Bring Our Children Home”, you can tell that the songs on this EP stem from a very personal place, and come directly from personal experience. The title song, “No Double Yellow Line”, is a stirring call to action, challenging the listener to get involved with the plight of the 160 million orphans in need of rescue. As her website says, “there’s no double yellow line on the road to orphan care and adoption. You can cross over at any time”.

Cindy does a wonderful job of writing these songs about adoption from all perspectives. “Stranger Among Us” was written from the point of view of the girl being adopted, and what her life is like, nowthat she is in a new, strange place. One of the most moving songs on the album is “Grace Will Grow”, the story of their own adoption experience with their 2 year old, Gracie, from Ethiopia.

If you know someone going through the process of adoption, or if you would just like to be challenged to think deeply about this important issue, then give this CD a listen. If you would like to learn more about adoption and Billy and Cindy’s journey, then check out her website.

Cindy’s beautiful voice, and powerful songs make this EP one to get!

We will be featuring our interview with Cindy on this month's edition of The Songwriter's Cafe Podcast.
