21

Just for formality sake I thought I would post this…


Last Monday marked another month of waiting for our little “Maggie” from China. They say “absence makes the heart grow fonder”…I’m not sure I can grow any fonder before my heart bursts right out of my chest!

21…wow, I still can’t believe it!

Here is a poem I stumbled across a few months ago.
It just felt so fitting for this post.


You Are Mine
by Kelly Feichtinger

I love you
though I have yet to see your face.
You are mine.

I dream of holding you in my arms
my child from far away
You are mine.

I lie awake at night
Imagining who you will be.
You are mine.

I prepare our home and my heart
to receive such a precious child.
You are mine.

I pray for your happiness and safety
until I can be the one to provide it.
You are mine.

I hold my breath
as we wait for the call.
You are mine.

I will the time to fly by
as we wait for permission to travel
You are mine.

I feel as though my heart will burst
when you are placed in my arms.
You are mine.

You rest your soft cheek against mine
and sigh contentedly.
I am yours.
