WIRTW #324 (the “Wir werden du bald sehen” edition)

I have used this space to write a lot about my family. You know I’m married, have two amazing children, Norah and Donovan, and a dog. But, you may not know that my family includes a teenager too. We call her our German daughter. She’s been living with us for the past 10 months. Next week, she leaves us to go home. You never know what the experience will bring when you permit someone to share your home and your lives for a year. We hoped for the best, and with our year coming to a close, I can say we got it. We gained another member of family, albeit one that lives more than 4,000 miles away. I will always think of Zarah as our German daughter.

For more on the experience, please read my wife’s thoughts on her blog.

As for Zarah, this is not, “Auf Weidersein,” but, “Wir werden du bald sehen.”
