Gift


This morning, I woke up and found a wonderful gift posted to my Facebook wall – a video from Simon’s foster mom!!! He calls her Ha-mae-na, and we talk about her often. A couple of weeks ago, we had received beautiful pictures of the two of them together while he still lived with her. And now today we got a video of her talking to us and to Simon Seul-gi!!! Her family helped get the message on video and post it for us. They also posted a translation for us, which was so kind.

I videotaped Simon’s reaction to it as he watched it for the first time. He had just gotten up and we showed him the video right away. He was SO happy to see his foster mom, and especially loved pointing at her, and the rug in the kitchen. He smiled and smiled all morning, and asked Dave to watch it again later in the day. Dave and I agreed that he was happier this afternoon than we’d seen him in a while. I think it’s a mix of his feeling better (yay!) and seeing his beloved foster mother. He loves her and misses her so much. She did an amazing job loving him and taking care of him. We are forever grateful to her.
