As shared by a Host Mom
Is this a picture of a mom with her kids? No, this is our au pair M. from Brazil with my kids!
Most people in our friendly town where she strolled with kids everywhere have mistaken her for the mommy, and complimented her on "her" children. It was an easy mistake to make. It only made me happy, because I knew M. loved my children like she would her own.
M. became a friend of all the preschool moms of my daughter’s school, and a year later they still ask about her.
In May it will be a year since M. ended her program and went home to Brazil. It was bittersweet, but our hearts became much bigger. They now span two continents, a part is now in South America.
M., we love you!
