Well we made it to Stuttgart! Germany has some beautiful scenery once you get out of the cities, lovely little mountain towns. We took a tour of some of the hillside vineyards on our first day here and yesterday went hiking in the Black Forrest (the site of some famous fairy tales like Hansel and Gretel!). The picture is taken in front of the house in Stuttgart where Roberto's grandmother lived in her childhood. She and her parents were forced to flee Germany in 1933 after the Nazis took power, they moved to the United States as refugees. Visiting her old house was a great experience and a wonderful insight into Roberto's family origin story. It's so important to know where you come from and understand family history, it's one of many reasons we're supportive of an open adoption - everyone should know where they come from.
