My dear cousin Stacy has spent quite a lot of time in Africa these past couple years. She worked at an orphanage (www.amanibabycottage.org) and helped adoptions go through for Americans. She came home with a beautiful 2 year old little girl named Anna. She's as sweet and gentle as can be. Anna is holding a Hawaiin Hello Kitty that I bought her at Hilo Hattie's in Maui. I think she liked it!
The kids! (me included - as a KID - and hey if you don't make yourself feel young, no one else is gonna)
The hug. It was like a Hallmark commerical with no words.
