Photo is of Rusul, taken in August 2008. She likes to ham it up sometimes, at other times she seems quiet and reflective.
Rusul and her dad went back to Iraq last week. Rusul has a new right foot, and an extra one that is somewhat bigger for her to grow into.
I wish I could have gone down to Greenville and spend some more time with her this month, but the gas situation rather precluded doing that, unfortunately. They were back at home last Friday, per reports from No More Victims. Hey, I wish I could speak some Arabic also, and find out more about what they are thinking and feeling.
On my last outing with Rusul (in Greenville), she was singing 'Thank You, Allah' in a little song. She came to Asheville for a house party and LOVED jumping on the trampoline! She liked to put salt on a slice of lemon and eat it ~ she had some quirks, that's for sure!
