Some twenty-seven odd years ago, my life changed drastically and this weekend the Object of that Change is arriving to visit.
The past weeks have almost had a surreal quality and I truly cannot quite believe that the very thing that I always hoped for, but never believed would happen is coming to fruition this weekend.
I have vacillated between moments of incredible joy to tear filled fear as the day has drawn closer.
What is this monumental occasion that has my world turned upside down, you ask? Gentle reader, the daughter I released for adoption just over 27 years ago is coming for a visit.
On my doorstep.
To say I am a wreck would be a huge understatement.
She is bringing her mother and her godmother with her for this visit.
Now, the question – who do I hug first?
