He smiled at me

Yip, he did. For the briefest of moments. Even came over and gave me a hug. Somewhat hesitantly, but he hugged me nevertheless. I tried to remain calm so he wouldn't be overwhelmed by a big hug. After all, we're just getting to know each other. It's a big step from his eyes welling up with tears when I as much as looked at him yesterday. We've not been able to communicate a whole lot as right now, he only speaks Kalinjin. But he'll learn English soon. Kiswahili, too. Perhaps he and I can work together on learning Kiswahili.

Three-year-old Dennis is indeed adjusting well to life at his new home.
