While Longing to be Parents
While waiting and longing to be parents, we got to know a couple also waiting for a child from South Africa just like us. Together we travelled to Stockholm for a children's fair. There we each bought a Ruben's baby for our expected children. They bought Nils and we bought Nora. Two weeks later, they received news of a little boy waiting for them in South Africa. We saw it as a sign that because they got a boy after buying Nils, we might be receiving a girl. And so it was that we shortly received news about our sweet little daughter, Julia, waiting for us.
Nora and Julia ended up being a lovely match right from the beginning since Nora would follow her everywhere. Today Julia’s little sister has embraced the role of being Nora’s mother.
