Farewell Friends

IT WAS A cold winter day on this date back in 2008 when we went to M’s school for her to bid her friends goodbye.

It was a cold and gloomy day on her last visit to her school. (27 Feb 2008)

M held up very well throughout the brief visit to school, but once in the car, her tears flowed and so did mine.

Two and a half years later, this “process” repeated in Hong Kong (link).
