Touchdown

My little boy is on U.S. soil.

I heard his little voice say, "Allo, Mommy."
I heard the joy and pride in my husband's voice.
The same joy and pride I heard in his voice in the hospital
after the birth of our other children.

My heart is full tonight.
I am overwhelmed with Joy.
Gratitude.
Relief.
Hope.
Excitement.
Tomorrow my arms will be full,
wrapped around four precious children.
The journey now truly begins.
