Today Margarita (who used to be the littlest in the orphanage but is now the ringleader for the munchkins) counted the bracelets on my arm (9) all the way through correctly without skipping or adding numbers! It was the first time I had heard her do this! It’s amazing to remember that when she arrived here 15 months ago she didn’t speak a word of Portuguese and wandered around in a daze, crying most of the time. Now she walks around like she owns the place and will be years ahead of her classmates when she begins primary school next year.
