I visited with Karina – not sure of the proper spelling yet – she is 3 and about to turn 4 years old in March. She is beautiful and healthy and sweet and I get to go back again today for a second visit in about two hours. I will take more pictures and post more about the days experience. It was absolutely unbelievably stunning. I am in love.
Here are some more photos of Karina taken during the second visit today. She is very active and inquisitive and will get along with my friend Tara’s little girl Shelby famously. In fact her actions and way of playing reminds me of Shelby to a T. We were playing with little tubs of play dough and she would put the cap on each one and put each tub away in her cubby one at a time. She also loved taking things out of her backpack and then putting them all back inside. She laughed out loud at the images she saw in the view finder. When we were putting away the play dough she broke up each chunk of play dough and put it in the little tub a bit at a time so it would fit. Then Alma (my coordinator / translator) asked her to put the correct color lid (matches the play dough) and she picked the correct lid each time. Every time I would catch her and squeeze her she would giggle. If I pick her up she puts her head down on my shoulder and hugs. She is so sweet and fun and active and has a great personality. I promise to write more especially about the first meeting and will post it tonight – which would be about mid day your time.
