I am trying to find the perfect mother/son song for my wedding?

Okay so my fiance and I are getting married in September and I am trying to get our songs together. His mother has not been there for him pretty much his whole life, she is now. So I am trying to find a good mother/son song for their dance that isnt pretty much saying "i watched you grow up blah blah blah" because she didnt (he was put into foster care so it is a sensitive subject). And I dont want his feelings to be hurt...I dont know what to dooo!!! HELP!

    "I Hope You Dance" by Lee Ann Womack doesn't focus on the watching you grow up stuff you want to avoid. (The YouTube video is below) But it does say many things a parent would or should wish for their child even if they did miss a lot of time together. I congratulate you both for doing a dance for him and his Mom because many would just opt to skip it. You say she is in his life now and maybe that's where the focus should be like you said, not on the past but on the future. Good luck!

    I don't know if this would be right for them or not. It doesn't talk about his childhood days but it is from a mom to her son. With their situation they both need to agree on the words & see what's right for their relationship.
