A while back, I ran across a fascinating article about words in other languages that have no direct translation in English. As I scrolled though the words and meanings, I found "fernweh" and kind of fell in love with it.

Fernweh (German) - Feeling homesick for a place you have never been to.

My heart is full of fernweh.

I am homesick for Eastern Europe. I'm homesick for a town that holds an orphanage that holds a child, my child. I am homesick for little boy I know only though pictures.

And another week has come and gone and I feel no closer to my little boy.

The anticipation and frustration and longing is hard.

I hoped to update with travel dates and a count down and packing list. But here I wait; fernweh.
