A few people have been asking about Christopher, our first overseas adoption to the United States (we don’t do things by halves) …..
….. well, after being mysteriously detained in customs at Heathrow Airport for a week, where he assures us he was well looked after and entertained, he finally arrived in Florida about a week ago.
His new family Dianne and Douglas are WONDERFUL and Florida is all he hoped for and more. He says he is embracing each and every new experience for us as he knows how much we dream of visiting America one day. He tells us that he has real freshly squeezed orange juice on tap, none of this concentrate stuff and is already addicted to Tootsie Rolls and all varieties of Hershey Bars!
….. and added that Dianne and Douglas were thrilled with our gift of foam bananas as they are something of a rare delicacy in The States!
He says the weather is fantastic, the food portions mahoooooosive, Key Lime Pie being especially nom, nom, nom and the people just can’t get enough of his cute English accent. He can’t wait until Douglas takes him fishing along the Florida Keys as that has always been one of his long felt wants since watching Tight Lines and Gone Fishing!
We are soooooooo happy for Christopher and a little excited too as he says that in the short time he has been Florida he has been able to partake a little retail activity and has sent us a little something of an American type nature!
