Celeste is our one who is always ready for the camera. At one point I was really frustrated that Olga, the director of Celeste’s orphanage, taught her that she was better than the other children. And while I still think it didn’t need to be to such an extreme, Olga taught Celeste that she was loved and that she was important. In those very early formative times, Celeste learned self-worth. My other daughters have struggled to do the same. Thank you, Mama Olga.
