Peek-a-boo

"She's finally coming home", Manya smiled teary-eyed.
Rick looked at his wife lovingly...
...the wrinkles beneath her eyes and the little grey in her hair...the signs of a long wait.
He had hated himself for not being able to gift her the joy of motherhood.
But Adoption was going to complete their family today.




Linking this to Day 8 of the FMSphotoaday challenge and the 55 Fiction prompt at the Write Tribe
