Reuniting with old friends
This weekend has been very special. Saturday night Hilary, her Mother and Anara flew in from NE (http://bringinghomeanara.blogspot.com). We traveled with this wonderful family on both our first visit trip and our pick up trip. They will always be very special to us, after all we survived a night on the floor of JFK... it was quite a bonding experience.
Anara is doing so well! Since last we met, she is now walking... errr, running full tilt. I'm not sure she really remembers me (even though we really bonded on trip #2), but she does remember Beck and Beck remembers her. Her first night here we went out to dinner where Beck stood proudly with his arm around her and sneaking a kiss here and there.
To add to the excitement, last night we got to welcome home a little girl Beck grew up with at Tokmok (same 'house') (http://www.journeytojyly.blogspot.com/). Jyly looked a little overwhelmed at the crowd that gathered at Logan. But when she spotted her old friend Beck the most beautiful smile appeared. She reached for him and he smiled back. It was obvious that they still remembered each other. After a few minutes Beck leaned over and gave Jyly a kiss.
Congratulations to Jyly and her new family!
