New Baby & Boston

Posted by Anne Marie Serrano on May 31, 2010

Justina had her baby. I don’t have all the details yet but I’m sure I will hear soon.

We are in Boston now. The weather is perfect and today we will see Nathan, help him move some stuff from his dorm to his new living quarters for the summer. Later on we will do some sightseeing.

I’ll try to add some pictures along the way.

Gonna be a Grandma- sort of…

Posted by Anne Marie Serrano on May 28, 2010

Leslie and Manu, our surrogate daughter and her partner are expecting a baby boy in November. We have know for awhile but she wanted us to keep it a secret until they were sure all was well with mother and child. I am so excited for them. We had such a wonderful visit with them when they came to visit us in Australia and we suspected that it wouldn’t be long before they started their family. They had just purchased a house before their visit and it was the natural next step.

I see a trip to Belgium in the near future.

Speaking of babies, Justina’s baby is due next week. I hope to have pictures to post, hint, hint.

We are going to Boston next week for Nathan’s graduation from MIT. WOW, it’s hard to believe it has been four years already. He will continue there for his Master’s degree. I am so proud of him. Of course I had nothing to do with it, Danny and Chris have done a wonderful job parenting Nathan and Curtis, who just became an Eagle Scout and will be starting his senior year in high school in the fall.

The trip will be a bit of a family reunion. Now with our family growing larger and farther away I need to take every opportunity to see them.

This all happened late last night. Fergus got a reply yesterday from a director of two hospitals in Adelaide. They had a nice long phone conversation and today they emailed some info about the job.  Fergus and I will be able to discuss it when he gets home from work. It sounds promising. They will help with relocation expenses, housing for six weeks until we find something to rent or buy, a car for a couple of weeks, etc. They will fly us out for a one week to visit and look around and meet staff and check out the area.

They also have an agency that will help us with the immigration process. He said the only thing that might be a problem is, ready for this…proving we speak English. That is a new immigration requirement but they haven’t figure out any way to prove it other than us taking a test. Don’t you love it!!! I will let you know more as soon as I know. He is having their recruiting person call us tomorrow to fill in the details and answer any questions we have. IT JUST MIGHT HAPPEN AFTER ALL. So keep checking in on the New Adventures of Anne Marie’s Australian Adventure , Part II continues.
