We recently confirmed that Zander had a foster sister during his 13+ months in Seoul! Our guess is that Dooly was intended to be his foster sister's toy, but that Zander really bonded with the pink dinosaur and she became his. Here is a recent shot of Zander on his glider with Dooly as he prepared to cheer on the MN Vikings:
Dooly even borrows Zander's clothing on occasion (and apparently Daddy's cell phone as well).
Back to Zander's foster sister - she is just a few days older than he is, and, amazingly, now lives near St. Paul! We had the privilege of meeting her and her parents on Sunday for a play date - it was delightful! We visited the Children's Museum and then went out for some delicious Korean cuisine. It was wonderful to see the children reunite and compare stories - the children share such a special connection. Here is Zander jamming on a drum in the 'Japan and Nature' exhibit at the Museum:
