the box

the box we would save in case of a fire
containing next to all documents of the adoption, all souvenirs of those first days, 
  his kazakh felt shoes, his first toys, 

most important, a small blanket in blue and orange, given to him when we left the orphanage together, a present from the director  to comfort him when he would be scared. it was made in the house and she strongly believed the smell would make him brave, still today M believes in it. and still today it works 

those first days , food was extremely important, so the box also contains his favourite russian cheese package
