Friday Fictioneers 23rd June

Thanks Rochelle.

The weather couldn’t dampen the mood in the car.
Finally all the red tape had been cut, dried and tied in a pretty bow.
Their papers were in order, and this was the final step.
Once aboard, they faced a new way of life, one filled with new beginnings.
It had taken years of planning, thousands of dollars, but it was done.
Legally binding.
They were finally a family now that the adoption had been finalised, and they could bring their Romanian daughter home.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    Oh, wonderful! I know people who have endured this process, so it was easy for me to put faces and names into this story 🙂

  7. I thought you might be headed for “Just married” but this is great, too.

  8. Awesome! Wonderfully told. :o) No wonder the rain couldn’t dampen their spirits.
