Desmond is really shy. He can barely greet someone he doesn't know, so entering a new situation with new people with him is trying, to say the least. However, the ladies at the planetarium who worked with the kids were extra nice to him and made sure that he felt included, even though his Spanish wasn't as good as the other kids his age.
The very first day we picked Desmond up from the Planetarium, we saw him talking to a little girl. This little girl, Isabela, would be his best friend the whole week. She would give him a big hug and kiss when we would pick him up and drop him off. She was always by his side. I thank my lucky stars that there are little girls and boys like Isabela out there that will happily befriend and take care of a little, shy, blonde boy.
