One year my husband traveled with me on one of my return trips to Vietnam. He met my family and fell in love with this nine-year old girl. She was the daughter of one of my cousins. Steve calls her the most grown up nine-year old he ever met. She had a very sweet and tender spirit.

For the two weeks we were visiting my family, the two of them would get up every morning and walk hand in hand. My husband would point to things and speak in English. She in turn would point to things and speak in Vietnamese. My husband knew maybe a couple of words in Vietnamese and she didn’t know any English. However, that didn’t stop the two of them.  They continued their ritual of the morning walk every single day we were there. Language of love transcends any “barriers”.
