Learning about each child

The kids were a little bit crankier today, Luca and Luchianna especially, but there might be a cold going around causing all the crankiness. It’s still great to come to the hospital. The novelty hasn’t worn off. Every day is a little bit different and we learning more about each child and what we can do to make them happy. For Luca if you shake his belly and shoulders I can usually get him to laugh. Luchianna just wants someone to hold her all the time to be happy. Today we did a lot of “teaching” with sign language with Gabby and Alina and then went to the middle school. I’m a little nervous about what we will be doing and how to open the students up to us. But at night, we were able to be Mihaela’s guests at the high school prom where we met some very nice and welcoming students and learned some Romanian dance traditions. It was definitely an experience we will never forget!
