The two of them at the guest house in Ethiopia
The things these two have made it through together. The things they have seen. I imagine these two sticking by eachother. Both smaller than most of their playmates. Teg, sickly and weak and carefree. "Mo" quick, strong and compassionate beyond his 3 years. I imagine- they were each others constant .. safe ground.
They are the same age and from what I can remember, in Ethiopia- they were the same size (although Teg was gaining weight quickly!!)
The pictures don't do justice. There was lots of squealing (Teg) and lots of kisses ("Mo"). He recognized us right away. Teg was in a bit of shock- but the squealing of joy commenced upon getting him unbuckled from his car seat. There were in eachothers arms for hugs immediately! From then on- it was as if they'd been together all this time and we were just in the way!
