SIX months in Melbourne :: Life Updates

Today marks six months to the day when I arrived in Melbourne late one night after tackling the seemingly heroic feat of such a long flight alone with the boys. So my trail of thoughts went back to all that happened within these last few months and I felt like writing a blog on it….

To the mother who wakes up multiple times a night to check on her babies, to the mother who has to wake up before the sun comes out, to the mother who left her work to be with her children, to the mother who chooses to work and thinks of her kids every moment, to…

When dreams come true …
