Sometimes I forget
dear sweet blog reader,
do not live right next door to me : )
You don’t know all the details.
Sometimes I forget to tell you the details.
Here are the details about Shoshi leaving.
Well, wait, I don’t think I ever wrote about when Shoshi came.
This was as good as you got:
Shoshi and his Mom came to America
so Shoshi could go to 4th grade in the United States.
Shoshi came at the end of August.
He did not speak a lot of English.
Perhaps 30 words.
In just 2 weeks,
by the time school started,
he was speaking fluently.
Shoshi’s Mom could understand some English,
but struggled with speaking it.
She missed Shoshi’s Dad very much.
Shoshi’s Dad has a business in Bangladesh.
In Bangladesh they are very wealthy.
They have a mansion, servants, and drivers.
Here they were not wealthy.
They lived with Shoshi’s extended family-
in the basement.
Shoshi came into our lives and added so much.
So much joy.
So much excitement.
that startle you with their heart.
Since he has been gone,
we don’t know how we ever got along without him
Although he was an early riser,
He loved 4th grade.
He got all A’s.
His Mom missed his Dad.
They had to go back.
When Shoshi first came
he couldn’t wait to go back to Bangladesh.
As the months wore on, he didn’t want to return.
It was hard to let him go.
Perhaps his Mom knew it would be too sad.
All of us are sad.
There is a void.
It is good to know that he is happy in his part of the world,
good to know that he is smiling and laughing and playing,
good to know he will go on to touch others in great ways.
It is just sad right now to be without him.
You will still see lots of pictures of him during the summer
as I go thru camera cards.
We had so many adventures I haven’t blogged yet.
I know that he touched your life with his smile.
He has impacted us all.
We will never be the same.
Here are some old Shoshi posts:
(you know, just in case I haven’t posted enough pictures of him…. )
This is how we look since he has left.
(Crying all the time)
You are beautiful.
