This is Grace with Jose Fernando. (Aren't her eyes amazingly blue?) Any time we saw either of them, he was carrying her around. Fernando is 14 years and completely smitten with my baby. He said he's never had a little sister before. They fell completely in love with each other. He watched her like a hawk the whole time we were on our trip. He made sure she was safe whether they were swimming or just walking around Jovellanos. Any time he was with her, he was always making eye contact with Kevin or I to insure that we knew she was safe. He is an amazing young man. When we were in a church service, he realized that we couldn't hear the interpreter, so he found another one, a dear friend of ours named Pichi, to interpret for us.
When we left, Fernando just sobbed. He was sad to see Kevin and I leave, but crushed that his little sister was leaving. Now when you see her, she is usually sporting one of his bracelets and two of his necklaces.
