like other mothers in Holland,
when the weather was good, I took the children to playgrounds in our
neighborhood. The summer before Lennert started primary school, he was totally
amazed by all the spider webs everywhere. Unlike other children who were busy
with their play in the sandpit or on the football field, Lennert stared
endlessly into the woods.Some
parents paid him odd looks, others praised how calm and relaxed he was. Then I
started to notice what a special child he was.
