Ţann 17.05.2018 hittu Stepan og Ute börnin sín Hönnu anetu og Jónas Kamil í fyrsta skipti á barnaheimili í Tékklandi. Ţau deildu međ okkur sögunni sinni og gáfu leyfi fyrir ţví ađ deila henni hér.
I don't think that we will ever forget the 17th of May 2018 - even so we cannot remember a lot of details because that day went by so fast. We started with a 1.5 hour meeting with psychologists and social workers. It was hard to concentrate since we knew that after that meeting, we would meet the children - our children.
When Hanna aneta and Jónas Kamil finally walked in, they were shy for approximately the first 3 minutes. After the first shyness was overcome, our two bundles of energy did want nothing else but play with us. All these other people in the room (and there were plenty: 3 psychologists, a social worker and our interpreter) were totally forgotten by all four of us. Even so it was a very strange feeling to bring Hanna aneta and Jónas Kamil back to their group for lunch, we were grateful for the much needed break. Playing with them was quite a workout. This day was the start of some quite exhausting but very special weeks.
Now after 12 weeks together, we all have gotten to know each other quite well. The children are much more relaxed. It is incredible how much German both of them understand and talk already. We are amazed how different our days as a family of four have become compared to the first weeks.
