A beautiful story from Ron and Margaret


The two Princes 2010-10-29 had to take a bath after hours of running :)



Paul's dad Ron & his wonderful Margaret have written a beautiful story about the boys! THANK YOU!!!
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Once upon a time in a far off land of tigers and dragons, lived two Princes ...because of the ways, and traditions of that land, their parents took each Prince many miles towards the mountains, the Princes were very young....and left them for someone else to care for, before returning to the big City..

The Princes met each other when they were taken in, and cared for by some kind people... who looked after other children, that had been left by their mothers...

There were many reasons as to why the children were given away...sometimes it was because the family was too large, sometimes the law said "Only one child allowed"...or as with our two Princes they both had something wrong with them...or to give them a better chance in life.

Their names are now Teo and Aiden, and they became very good friends ,almost 'blood brothers' ..always together, playing and laughing...and so that's how their life was going to be, living and playing with many other children..Aiden was born with a Cleft Palate and was given some treatment for it...whilst Teo suffered some heart problem, but hopefully that will heal in time...

At the same time they were in the land called China, across the seas and mountains lived two people called Paul and Isabel, they were married and lived in Sweden....they dearly wanted to have children of their own, but it wasn't possible.....so they heard about children like Aiden and Teo many miles away, and that it may be possible to adopt a child of their own,so they wrote a letter to ask...

Also living in Sweden were Calle and Tina, they were also married and wanted a child of their own...and they also wrote to enquire about adoption. This was going to be a long, long process....and as time went on both couples enquired on the Internet about others who had already adopted from China, or were hoping to....

After a while both Calle / Tina's and Paul and Isabel's paths crossed and they communicated ..met and became very good friends....this was very good for them all, they shared all the joy and upsets of news from China, then delays...

Finally good news came through..all the paperwork correct..Tina and Calle went to China and adopted Teo, at last they were to become a family...
This meant that the two Princes had been parted...as their close bond to be destroyed?..so easilly this story could have a sad ending..

Very soon afterwards, Paul and Isabel got their good news, and travelled to China in January 2010... to adopt Aiden and bring him home,also to Sweden to become a family...

We now have both our Princes safely adopted, by two couples who were also good friends living about 60 miles apart, so they would still meet..after travelling thousands of miles..

There is just one more magical twist to our Fairy Tale....Paul and Isabel lived in a small flat on the 3rd floor, and wanted to move to a house with a garden, they looked at several houses, some they liked. and some they didn't..

Then the late Spring early Summer, they saw the ideal home,,large garden....plenty of space...beautiful area...just right for a new family to grow up in. and they moved in July.


But what of Teo...did this mean that again their friendship was to be jeapodised....?...well that wouldn't be the happy ending we all wished for...

Paul..Isabel..Tina..Calle and our two little Princes live a few hundred yards apart, able to meet daily, play and laugh again together...go to the same school..and even fight over the prettiest Princess in town when they are older......

And they all lived happilly ever after.

We are all a little old to believe in Fairy Stories.....but we have seen ..and held the Princes....we have heard them laugh....and seen them play....we now believe that Fairy Stories can come true.

The End.....or is it just the beginning?

Ron and Margaret
