I’m going to try to explain the unexplainable. I am in love. Completely, utterly undone. In Love. There are days I am certain that my heart cannot bear it. There is a beautiful little boy named Aiden Joseph who has won my heart. With the first glance into his precious eyes, he became my son.
For months now, I have been on a journey pursuing this one that I love. Doing everything in my power to get to him, to hold him face to face, and declare my love and devotion to him.
He of course knows none of this. He does not know that there is a momma and a poppa miles away who think of him constantly, pray for him continually, and long for the day when he will be in our arms.
Tonight as I write, I am not sure how much more love my heart can contain. I look at his face over and over again. Like a true looney toon, I talk to his picture, tell him I’m coming, and tell him I’ll be his mommy forever. I’m even crazy enough to tell him that I’m bringing Burt’s Bee’s lip balm and lotion for his chapped lips and dry skin. I know I’m a total nut case. Totally and completely in love with a boy named Aiden.
