Somewhere Out There

The movie An American Tail came out in 1986, but I didn't see it until 1997. It's about a family of mice who immigrate to America and their son Fievel becomes separated from them in a strange land. This song devastated me. At the time, my mother was in Namibia with the Peace Corps, and my infant daughter was somewhere in China waiting to be matched with parents. I was super stressed about waiting so long for a baby, and I missed Mom, too. The song still makes me cry, remembering that year.
