I’m not going to say that Elen is my favorite sister-in-law. I don’t play favorites with my relatives. I don’t like one brother more than the other and I don’t like one sister-in-law more than the other. But I do like Elen. For one, she’s a donor match for Lis. That makes things nice. If Lis were to need a transplant then Elen would be the donor, thus saving her sister’s (my wife) life. So that’s pretty cool and makes me like her a lot.
Elen is the youngest of four sisters, and like her sisters and mom, she is a very caring person. She’s also one of Lukas’ favorite people. He was lucky enough to have his Tia here for three months. Every morning they would play games together. You could see in Lukas’ eyes that he loves his Tia. Elen also did most of the diaper changing during the three months they were here. That’s not a fun task for anyone – trust me – I don’t enjoy it all too much.
Another thing great about Elen is that she treats my family like family. My brothers are like her brothers, my parents like her parents. She was able to go out with my brothers and have some drinks or watch a movie or joining them at church.
While here Elen started hanging out with my brother Erik. I guess they broke the “brother” thing cause they seem to like each other. Earlier I had reported that she had liked him as a “friend”. I guess that was just a front she was putting on us. Mostly because she didn’t want her Mom to know she was interested. Now Erik plans on visiting Brazil, so we’ll see what happens.
Thanks for all your help Elen. You can check out her blog at spaces.msn.com/members/elenstevanato. And if that’s not right just check the left side of my blog for a link to her site.
