conversations with E

our girl 

Mom: I love this picture of you from China in your wheelchair. Look how little you were (pause). I wish I could have known you when you were a baby, I would have liked to have held you then (smiling).

E: Yeah, I was almost 4 when you met me

Mom: Yeah and you were so cute

E: Yeah and I was afraid

Mom: Me too. But we're not afraid anymore

E: Yeah, we love each other

Mom: Yes, we love each other a lot 

(hugs, kisses, silence).
