Africa Bound

i'm in the chicago airport.
with auntie melissa and uncle jeremy.
on my way to you.
i didn't sleep very well last night.
i was too anxious.
i'm overwhelmed with joy at the thought of being able to hold you, to feel your weight in this world.
i'm worried about leaving you in just 10 short days.  
i'm terrified that i will return disappointed in the world.
i've already looked at the photo albums we made you twice.
your smiles fix everything.
i have never been more excited.

dear babies,
you are loved.  you are safe.  you are wanted.
i cannot wait to see you.

love, mom
