Lulu is missing her friends. She spent the first year of her life in a room full of playmates, and just like that they are gone from her every day. One of her former roommates and pals, Hana is also now home with her family. I’ve talk about Hana’s family here before, as we became deep friends through our wait to bring our girls home. Hana’s family recently sent out a sweet letter and card announcing her arrival, and it is a good thing I opened the mail the day it arrived or else I don’t believe I would have had a chance to see the card myself. Lu has taken full possession of the pictures of her beloved friend, and will YELL! at anyone who tries to take it from her. Today, Lu was walking around with Hana’s picture again when she brought me the photo album we had left with her in Ethiopia when we went our first trip. It is full of photos of us and her and our house – many families bring these books to their kids to help them have a reference for their soon-to-be-forever- family. What Fasi Lu was asking me to do struck me as both highly intelligent and incredibly sweet.
