I wanted to share something crazy that happened this week. The last two weeks Koen and I have been traveling through Brazil to visit Luisa (4) and her family and meet James Gabriel (11) and his mom. On our last day, Koen and I were driving back to Sao Paulo to meet Luisa one more time before flying back to Amsterdam.
All of a sudden I received a message on Instagram from Mateus. ‘Hi Wilma! My name is Mateus, I’m from Brazil and I have FIL too. I read your blog and I’m happy to know that I’m not the only one’. I couldn’t believe what I just read. The fact that I found someone else with FIL – who is the same age as I am – is already impressive. But guess what.. he lives in Sau Paulo!
I immediately contacted Esther (Luisa’s mom) to share this amazing news. We were all very excited and decided to meet at a mall close to his work.
Meant to be
I received his first message at 1pm… and 5pm we were sitting together at Mc Donald’s, just before I had to leave to the airport! I still can’t believe it and I’m so amazed by this perfect timing.. it’s definitely meant to be! Mateus joined our FIL-group on Facebook and is part of our special FILamily now ❤
