Comparison

Here's a picture of Asher the day I met him one month ago. It was very difficult to get him to look at me, and eye contact was accidental. Circles under his eyes, skinny face (his temples were sunken in) and no affect. Then one of the pictures I took the other day after two weeks in my care.  Wow....what a difference.

He really does not look like the same child, Leah. I mean, maybe brothers, but surely that's not the one you brought home? :o) He is adorable, and I can't wait to watch and see his development stories. Keep 'em coming, lovely!
