Meher's New Friend
My childhood friend Mattie arrived in New Delhi on Saturday night. She came from Chicago, so brought more donations from supporters in Barrington and a camcorder so I can continue documenting everything that is happening with Meher. She met Meher today and gave her the very cute clothes sent from parents at Grove Avenue Elementary School.
Meher was very excited both by Mattie and the new camcorder. She invited us to her house and her mother insisted that we drink tea there, despite the fact that her father was sleeping and we didn't want to disturb him! Meher was very excited to have a new visitor and showed us lots of things in her house. She also took a liking to Mattie's digital camera and showed a lot of interest in photography, especially taking pictures of herself!
