My friend Lindsey just visited Biruk while she was in Ethiopia picking up her kids.
She sent me 160 pictures from Kolfe.
(many which featured my sweet boy)
I love her for that.
But what I love most, is that she gave him this:
from his mama
(and probably another one from herself)
I was all smiles going through the pictures - until this one. I suspect this final shot was snapped as Lindsey and the other visitors drove away. This is the shot that captures everyday life, the one he lives when there are no visitors to chat with, hug, and take pictures.
