Lawrence family (Taranaki) - January 2017
Dear Alecia, Hayden, Fletcher, Finn and Emelia,
I can't believe that I'm already here for five months; it feels
like one week and my whole life at the same time. I feel like a
real family member and you are my second family. Home is where the
Dome is (famous church in my home town in Germany) and home is
where Mount Taranaki is!
You are such a beautiful family and there is so much love around
our house. Like always when you make such a big decision to travel
on the other side of the world there is a little bit insecurity in
our heart but mine flew away in my first week in your family.
You support me with my trips and activities I want to do. All my
friends are welcome in your house and you try to make especially
the Christmas time as easy as possible for me. I am looking forward
to our big au pair BBQ.
Alecia it was such a lovely welcome to see your open smile on the
airport and we could directly talk so much. You have always an open
ear for me and advice. Thank you for watching the best TV shows,
borrowing me your shoes and let me taste sea urchins.
Hayden thank you for all the ice cream and the new potato
recipes. And all the funny Friday evenings at indoor soccer. We are
the second team from behind … so nearly winner. You are maybe not
the best photographer but I have all the experiences on the farm in
my memories driving the tractor, feed calves, milking and
And my little troublemaker. Sometimes I need all my patience but
then you are stealing my heart with your smiles and funny comments.
Fletcher I am so proud of how much you learned the last month in
school and you are the best big brother for Emelia and Finn. My
little helper Finn you are the master chef in the kitchen and in
the vegetable garden.
And Emelia I love listening to your stories also when I can't
understand everything. You are just too funny when you are
saying my name a hundred times just because you are proud of your
Thank you that I can be a part of your amazing family and you
welcomed me in the world of craziness. I hope you come visit me in
Germany so that I can share all the nice places and my family with
you. And Emelia is already planned as an au pair for my kids.
Lots of Love,
