12 weeks old
18 February 12
Elijah is now twelve weeks old — happy, healthy and getting chubby. He chuckles when tickled and trades smile for smile. It’s lovely to have him in our family.
Our Sudanese friend Hakima has a special song that she sings for Elijah, saying “Elijah is a boy, Elijah is a white boy. But Elijah is also a Dinka, he dances like a Dinka!”
As for me, I am still having so many dark days that I cannot maintain a positive perspective on our lifestyle, our family and even the present moment. Some outings distract me, others stretch me to almost-breaking point. But still I go on, as I must.
