China Short Post L -- Tears In My Eyes

I walked by where my daughter is sitting with her didi ("little brother") and her girlfriend, Chow Chow. My daughter called me over. "Do you know what we are saying? We are telling how we came to that place."

A brief conversation followed, and I discovered that the three children were telling each other how they came to be at the orphanage. All three of them were old enough at the time that they remember how they got there. 

I asked a question, but she shushed me because they were still talking.

I cannot tell you how touching and bittersweet it is to hear three children laughing as they tell each other how they became orphans.
