Year of the Rooster

I have just finished reading an excellent book written by Czech author, Tereza Bou─Źkova, Year of the Rooster / original title: Rok kohouta:

It hasn't been translated to English yet, but it was translated in many European languages.

I applaud the author for the courage. Because, she wrote about the theme that it is a tabu in our society. Adoption story that did not went well. It is an autobiographic story.

She and her husband couldn't have children, so they adopted two Romany babies, two boys. They gave them all the love possible and offered best education possible. But still, when the boys were still teenagers, they went to the living that is written in their genes. Living somewhere without official address, without documents, without jobs, providing for themselves with small criminal.

I know there are many many adoptions with happy ending.

But deep in my soul I know that if we adopted, our adoption story would be the same as described in the novel. 

It doesn't really matter actually what we think about adoption any more. My husband will be soon 50 and I will be within few years... We are way too old for adopting now anyway.

Dear Mali - you are the best!

When I started reading blogs and then later writing my blog, other bloggers seemed somehow not real. Today the kind presence of my bloggie friend Mali was very real  in our flat. 

Mali made something really wonderful. She sent a letter for the two girls that I teach English (Daisy and her little sister) and some cute gifts. 

I was learning with the girls today and it was just great. They learned where on the world map New Zealand is. Which language they speak there. And they realized that English is something very useful. You can actually read a letter addressed to you!  

(the coolest for them were obviously the gifts. They both agreed that no other child in the class has anything from New Zealand except them).

We had the best lesson ever together.

Dear Mali - thank you again. You are awesome.

Good news II

My gyn has just made another ultrasound.
The cyst has gone, completely.
I am really happy.

(Now all I have to do is to put under control the reflux that has been bothering me for the last three months and then I have no further wishes).

PS:  This year I had 40 sunflowers on my garden, they were beautiful. The photo was taken a month ago.

Chain email

I just got a chain letter from a friend - the text was sweet.
"I know you are busy with everyday life, and so am I , I just wanted to tell you that I love you bla bla bla". 

It is true that we don't see each other often.
But she knows about my failed 10 IVFs.
And she still thinks it is OK to send me an email with this photo???

The results are a relief

Thank you for all of your kind wishes!

I am going back in one week, for monitoring the size of the cyst. But I am not worried any more.
