Four Years

It seems just like yesterday.

I woke up early, delirious. I am not sure if the delirium was from the lack of sleep, the jet lag or the sheer enormity of what was going to happen.

It was not how I had imagined it would be. It was chaotic. It was busy. It was perfect.

Four years ago on October 30th, I met my daughter for the first time.

I held her in my arms for the first time and I have never let go.

She is mine. I am hers.

We are a family. Now. Forever. Always.
