The day that our precious little Leo boy was born.
First I would mention that our due date was settled for 19th August, but I was expected to carry the child for a little longer as the midwife told. But well well well, on 18th August when me and my partner were about to set outselves to bedtime at 11pm, I started noticing regular contractions.

One of my favourite discoveries is an autobiography of a Swedish writer Anna Sundberg, titled “The Terrorist’s Wife”. It was both exciting and terrifying at the same time.
It is a journey throughout 16 years since the first time Anna fell in love and got married with a muslim and how she started to realise what she had bound up with. For some period she lived in Germany, then in a Georgian village, near Chechen border, and afterwards in Syria as well. She got married twice, gave birth to four children, saw how her sons were taught to handle a gun, shared her husband with another woman etc.
