LID'versary

Hi Everyone...

Well, what can I say? 28 months behind us, and how many more to go?

I have been thinking about Kaelie all day today. I feel in my heart that she has been born already. As the full moon rose tonight and dodged in and out from behind the clouds, I looked up and just thought about how the sun might be coming across her sweet face. Where is she? Is she well-fed? Loved? Safe? Is she in the midst of the terrible devestation of floods and earthquakes? I love this child whom I've never met with all my heart, in the depths and recesses of my very soul. Does she somehow know or sense that love, these ties that bind us together?

Here are the lyrics to a once-popular Richard Marx ballad. While it speaks of a long-distance romantic relationship, every time I happen to hear it, this song brings tears to my eyes and I think of my sweet little girl Kaelie waiting for us an ocean and a continent away.

Oceans apart day after day,
And I slowly go insane.
I hear your voice on the line,
But it doesn't stop the pain.
If I see you next to never,
How can we say forever?
Wherever you go,
Whatever you do,
I will be right here
waiting for you.
Whatever it takes,
Or how my heart breaks,
I will be right here
waiting for you.
I took for granted,
all the times
That I though would last somehow.
I hear the laughter, I taste the tears
But I can't get near you now.
Oh, can't you see it baby?
You've got me goin' crazy.
Wherever you go,
Whatever you do,
I will be right here
waiting for you.
Whatever it takes,
Or how my heart breaks,
I will be right here
waiting for you.
I wonder how we can survive
This romance.
But in the end
if I'm with you,
I'll take the chance.
Oh, can't you see it baby?
You've got me goin' crazy.
Wherever you go,
Whatever you do,
I will be right here
waiting for you.
Whatever it takes,
Or how my heart breaks,
I will be right here
waiting for you.
Kaelie, Mama loves you so much!
