I know today was a challenge for her. From 10:30 am – 4:30 pm, so many people, all speaking Spanish and wanting her to respond to them. I got frustrated with her at times. I wanted her to at least smile, to somehow express that she wasn’t spoiled or snobby or standoffish … When the other little girls came over to try out their English on her, I wanted her to interact with them instead of turning around and hiding her face in my shirt.
And I don’t want to miss any of them.
