I could be totally biased and reading into these messages so much, but it seems to me that Wondimu absolutely captures every person's heart that he interacts with. This child is not running low on affection--either the giving kind or receiving kind. Here are a few of the messages below:
- I saw your baby boy today! He is precious and was hanging out with Yonas.
- Stacie, Yonas and Jobe [two of our adoption agency's employees] are BOTH in love with Wondimu. They picked him up, held him, and loved on him every day when I was there!! They even let me hold Wondimu a couple of times! ;-)
- Hi! My name is S* and my son Z* and your son Wondimu are best friends! It was hard to take any pictures of my son without yours right there with him! They are so adorable together!! So I have a few photos of them together playing through the window in their room at the transition home. And I have video of them playing and squealing and laughing. It will melt your heart! In the photo called Jealousy, Wondimu climbed in my lap and hugged me, and my Z* had a fit. You can see he has thrown himself over my legs! He did not like sharing his mommy! I hope that it is okay that I have pictures of your son! He won us over!! My sister is with me for this trip and she has played with Wondimu every day while I played with my son. He is a doll! Everyone loves him! He is always so happy and smiling! I will be sure to hug on Wondimu a lot also! He has taken to my sister, so the 4 of us play together. Today we rolled a ball around on the floor. Wondimu does so good with Z*. Z* doesn't like to share that much, and Wondimu is so good to sacrifice so that Z* isnt upset!
Here's a few pics that were emailed to me today:
|Wondimu is the one on the inside of the window.|
|Stealing all the love!|
|The sweetest face in the whole wide world... all decked out for Christmas dinner!|
|This is Wondimu and Yonas. I believe Wondimu has bonded quite a bit with him and Jobe. We will need to get good pictures of them to be able to show to Wondimu when we bring him home!|
