Before I came to Israel I saw Liam, my nephew, once a week if that. Family is very important to me, so even that didn't seem enough.
Now, we are essentially living together. I change his poopy diapers (well I have done, twice!), I read him about The Hulk... about a thousand times, but he doesn't seem to care. Back in New York, he called me Nanana. Now I've been upgraded to Iyana, with hugs and pinches at will, and all are received with glee.
He is my best friend here. I see Israel through his eyes, and it has never looked more beautiful.
