I just found this postcard with Yiddish script writing on the back. The front of the postcard has a picture of my father taken about 1915 when he was 2 years old. He was in Minsk with his mother; his father had immigrated to Chicago earlier. I would greatly appreciate your assistance in providing an English translation of the postcard. Thank you so much.

9/16/2013 11:44 PM The quality is poor, I can't read everything. It's a letter from a wife to a husband. She writes several times that she hopes with God's help to see him soon. Something about her father who sends regards and also hopes that they will be soon together. The end of the text is a bit clearer: On the picture from me your son that wishes you all the best..and he wants to meet you .. his name is Leibe.
(Maybe the father left before his son's birth?)
