I had all these visions of my baby suddenly turning into an adult at that magic 18 years. It didn't happen. She's a beautiful, young woman just starting to make her way in the world. She got a job, she's going to school and ... God, I miss her. She seems so self-assured and confident and then, I get a call, "Mom! How do you iron a shirt?" OMG. I've showed her so many times. I wonder if it's just a way to connect with me without having to say she misses me. Hmmmmm. She's great and beautiful ... and maybe, just maybe, I did a good job.
