Now that we are about to leave for the U.S., my heart is filled with mixed emotions. I am excited, eager and happy to be with hubby after being away from him for the longest time since we got married. However, my heart aches for my dear family because they will miss us, especially their grandson Caleb. But that's life I guess. I chose to be married to a foreigner and being away from my family was part of the package. Anyway, I did have a great time bonding with them for the past 3 months. All the great memories spent in those months will forever be etched in my heart and memory. And I have good pictures to remind me of them when I get back.
I'm grateful to have a husband as supportive and understanding as my Jeff. It wasn't easy for him to be away from us for a long time, yet he wanted Caleb to meet and bond with his grandparents even if it would sacrifice his own bonding time with his son. He had missed a lot of Caleb's developmental milestones so I know he would be pleasantly surprised to see how much Caleb has grown and developed in 3 months.
I'm sharing some photos of Caleb with his maternal grandparents. Going to miss my mama and papa and sister, but I am going to see you again in a few years time. That's something I look forward to.
