I’m here!!!!! I’ve dreamed of being in Baghdad for 16 years;
and I’ve prayed for this place and its people just as long.
“Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.”
I think a forest of life sprouted and sprang to full height the second my feet hit the ground.
And I shall run wildly and walk peacefully through this forest forever.
