She smiled so big, so happy, and she got a bit teary-eyed. "Isn't he the sweetest little thing?" I could tell she sensed the sincerity of him, how much he wanted to give her a special good-bye, even if he didn't know how to put it into words.
When we got outside and away from her, I crouched down and looked him in the eyes. "That was the perfect thing to say, Andrew, and you know why? Because it came from your heart. She could tell you were really happy to meet her, and I think you made her feel really special. I'm so proud of how you treat people, Andrew."
I want to remember his sweet, proud face forever.
I love watching his precious little self get to do what it NEEDS to do. Getting to feel like an important part of helping others.
Goodness, I love this little man.
