A Different Wait

This wait is different.  I know your face.  I imagine your laugh, gosh I hope you are laughing.  So much has happened in your short three years of life.  I wonder what you are doing, who you are playing with?  What your favorite food is?  Are you sleeping through the night? I lie in bed and all these thoughts run through my head.  My mind races.  The things I need to do to get ready for you to come home.  Painting a bedroom, figuring out the "theme" for the room.  I think about getting to know you, how hard, how easy that will be.  If you'll understand me, if I'll understand you.  I'm waiting, but this wait is different.

The wait is very different, indeed! I hope that the wait won't be too long and that you will both be united soon!
