I never thought it would happen again

By Mila

I had lost my hope for everything. Hope for waking up happily the next morning, hope for a good future, and hope for love. The only thing I had on my mind was my two daughters whom I was taking care of all alone. I never thought that I could fall in love again, especially not in an asylum center. But then he showed up. In the middle of the asylum center. He made me feel alive and I began to appreciate every single piece of life again. I was in my 40’s, and with him by my side I began to feel young again and to think that I still had a lot of years to enjoy my life.
After some months he got residence permit and moved far away, but he kept coming back for me. Either of us had a family in Denmark, so we decided to get married and be each other’s family. At the wedding my daughters were my witnesses, which was an unforgettable experience. Well, we began to live together, and one day I found out that I was going to be mother again. In my age I thought it would be very hard, but I always wanted a son too.
With the age difference of 20 years between my daughters and my son it is a very unique experience. I am happy for my life… I am happy for finding hope in Denmark. Even though I still have problems getting residence permit we are fighting. But the important thing is that we fight together.
