Today was a beautiful day. My sister and her family made it safely over the snowy Sierras with all 8 kiddos, and we had some time to begin bonding with Dz. He talked more today and smiled a lot. He asked a lot of questions and laughed with us over a game of Monopoly. I made chicken soup for him because that’s what we do when the children we love are feeling a bit sick with a cough. I hope he understands that some day. And I hope he feels better tomorrow. And I hope he knows how happy it made me when he hugged me good night.
