A David Moment (New Friend)

Some time ago David and I went to take my Dad out to lunch with my brother. Now we had been up there before since my dad's new Slovakian aide had started but David hadn't really met her. This time after we got back from lunch we went inside my dad's house and David spent sometime with Bozena (pronounced Bojenna). She put him on the stair chair lift and had him ride up and down the stairs many times. Seeing that David was disabled she asked me if he had born that way and I said yes. She put her head down and her eyes filled with tears. She said to him over and over again, "David you and I are friends, yes?" and hugged him. He gave her his special hug which is very hard.
Later that night I went into check on him in bed. He was awake and he looked at me with a big grin and said, "I have a new friend."
