Oh, I had no idea how traumatizing my words were. I thought that Madeline would think that it was thoughtful of me to have a duplicate book, but she must have thought that I was going to abandon her on the streets of Bangkok later today, with her little arms clutched around a book of photographs! I have never seen a sadder and more worried face on my little girl!
What else could I do but say, "Oh, Madeline, you can always live with us if you want to!" and give her a big reassuring hug.
But she's not going to really want to live with us forever, right???
