    Wistful- (adverb wistfully) you could use that in situations which were not so important, such as wishing the rain would stop and you could enjoy a sunny holiday.

    See above. Take care with your spelling.

    She yearns for a baby.
    She longs to have a baby.
    She is desperate to have a baby.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
