Melkamu visits the guesthouse
Today we got to bring Melkamu to the guesthouse for the morning. We went to his room and played with him for a bit. He crawled to me as soon as he saw me, which was wonderful, and I teased several laughs out of him. Then we brought him back to the guesthouse, which was a very frightening experience for him. He was extremely clingy and fearful of most everything. When we brought him back to the care center at naptime, he lay down and looked shell-shocked. He didn't cry, but he tracked me out of the room with his eyes like "I just don't get it...why are you leaving?" I am so glad we don't have to do that again, but it makes me hate (even more than I already did) that I've got to be back at work again on Monday.
