Read in Nederlands
Saturday June 16th, 2018, I flew to Madrid to meet Samuel and his family. A special weekend because it was his birthday that Sunday! Of course I brought him presents from the Netherlands.
Samuel’s 5th birthday
On Sunday, June 17th, we celebrated Samuel’s birthday in a play paradise for kids. I met his lovely family: his grandparents, aunts, nephews and nieces who all love him very much. On Monday Samuel had to go to school, so I spent the day with his parents Leni and Jorge. They showed me Madrid and treated me on a great lunch. Leni loves to cook and she prepared a delicious healthy meal in the evening.
Samuel is one of the sweetest and smartest kids I know. He can solve cubes in a short time, write at a very young age and he already knew some English words that he had picked up from watching Netflix. He’s a huge fan of Pokémon and knows all the names by heart. Unfortunately, Samuel has a severe variant of FIL and has had to undergo many surgeries.
Meeting in the Netherlands
Samuel and his parents will soon visit me in the Netherlands. The plan is that Mille and her parents from Denmark will also come to the Netherlands in the same week, so we can spend a nice weekend together. Mille and Samuel are the same age and have the same personality: both very sweet, joyful and smart. I really want to make sure those two can meet and I am really looking forward to this group meeting 🤩
