Now, Bailey is asleep under my office chair as I write this final blog entry. A light rain falls and the gray afternoon sky is unwelcoming. When we arrived home a message from Rasmus awaited us on Facebook: “Miss you guys.” Once again, that gnawing pain deep in the gut.
In a few days there will be two empty beds up on the second floor. The boys will be with family and hometown friends, their other lives returned… with one happy difference: Now, Rasmus and Felix have two families, two sets of friends, two hometowns, two homes... and in a real way, two countries.
We wish them well and send our love, always.
