We Have a Log In Date

I can finally say
the real wait is upon us.
Our dossier was officially logged in
at the
on November 4th, 2008.

Now we wait
for words
and good news.
We wait our turn
to be called forth
to travel.

Our family beats with an extra heart
and we dance in secret
and smile at strangers.

How odd
that we live leaning forward
toward our little Lilah
who doesn't yet know
she's waiting for us.
