Momma combs his hair
And daddy helps him brush his teeth
Day after day for thirty years the same routine
The special needs he lives with
Makes life seem so unfair
But he thanks God everyday
'Cause he knows mom and dad are there.
And he's a hero and she's a hero
It doesn't matter that nobody knows their names
They keep on givin'
To make life worth a livin'
Might go unnoticed
But they're heroes just the same.
They tried for many years
To have a baby of their own
But God knew a little girl
That didn't have a home
Someone else's burden was their blessing in disguise
Now she's got a mom and daddy there to hold her when she cries.
Every single parent
Who must carry twice the load
And those who sacrifice
To raise a child that's not their own
They dedicate their time to make a difference
In someone else's life
And in my eyes.
They might go unnoticed but they're heroes...
