Going to see Azi

The trip that I have been waiting for so many years to take is, finally, going to take place, my family reunion and more importantly my reunion with, my sister, Azi that I have not seen since I was seventeen years old. The sister that I thought was my mother for the first five years of my life and have always loved so much. I have dreamed about the moment that I will see her and embrace her for many years. I have never been able to think about that moment and visualize it without crying. I cannot believe that I will, finally, see her in two weeks.

The family reunion is going to be in Dubai. I will leave on April 1st and will be back eleven days later. Different members of my family are coming to Dubai from four different countries. Six of them are coming from Iran. It took nearly two years to organize this trip and find the location that worked the best for everyone. Some countries don’t issue visas to Iranian citizens, so we had to find a place where everyone could go. We had to take into consideration everyone’s school and work schedule. So finally everything is coming together. I so hope that nothing will go wrong in the next two weeks. My heart could not take it.

I have been so emotional about this visit. I cry every time I remember that I will see Azi and my family in just a few weeks. I know there will be a lot of tears and hugs. We will share our joys and pains and shower each other with the love that has been bundled up for so many years. I will be around people who love me and I, also, love so much. My heart and soul need this.

My blog entry of Sunday, May 10, 2009 is titled, “My sister Azi”. It will explain the reason for my deep attachment to her.
