Irlanda, sii gentile con il mio bambino - Ireland, be kind with my child

§ Oggi abbiamo avuto una bellissima notizia: Matteo è stato accettato per un programma di studio in Irlanda.
§ Today we received a wonderful piece of news: Matteo has been accepted in a exchange program in Ireland.

§ Questo significa che il prossimo autunno Matteo trascorrerà circa 6 mesi accolto da una famiglia
  § This means that during next Autumn Matteo will spend nearly 6 months hosted by an Irish family, going to school and sharing  their lives.

§ Io ne sono felicissima.
Felice per Matteo che vivrà un'esperienza unica.  Emozionata perchè non si è mai allontanato da casa per tempi prolungati.  Intimorita perchè non sappiamo cosa lo aspetta.
Sapremo infatti la sua destinazione solo un mese prima della partenza e non conosceremo la sua nuova "famiglia" fino a quel momento.

§ I am very happy for these news.
Happy for Matteo who will live a unique experience. Thrilled because he has never been out of home for long periods. Worried because we don't know what's ahead of him.
Actually we shall know his destination only one month before his departure and we shall not meet his new "family" till that moment.

§ Ma sono certa che sarà tutto fantastico.
L'Irlanda è un meraviglioso paese e  tutti gli Irlandesi che ho conosciuto erano adorabili e gentili.
Niente potrà andare storto.

§ But I am certain that everything will be fantastic.
Ireland is a wonderful country and all the Irish people whom I ever met were lovely and kind.
Nothing will go wrong.

I hope your son is happy! My sons have been away from me too many times & I worry so much! But each is a life lesson. It is so hard to let them spread their wings & fly! I think you have probably taught him well to make his own good decisions.
Hugs,
Lainie

Rosanna, How wonderful for Matteo! When my nephew was in college a few years back he spent 6 months in Grenoble and had the best time. The host families that are involved in these student exchanges are always so wonderful!!

"... il cielo d'Irlanda è Dio che suona la fisarmonica: si apre e si chiude al suono della sua musica..."
Io sono certa che sarà per voi e per lui una esperienza importante e bellissima: se tutte le strade verso l'emancipazione fossero sovrastate da un cielo così, crescere sarebbe per tutti una passeggiata :-)

Rosanna, try not to worry. Matteo will have a brilliant time in Ireland and what an adventure..xxx

Anche io sono andata via quando avevo 17 anni (un anno negli USA con Afs) e come vedi sono tornata indietro sana e salva e ho vissuto un'esperienza indimenticabile! Sono sicura che Matteo godrà ogni singolo istante del suo soggiorno in Irlanda!
Un abbraccio,
Lucia

Hi Rosanna. I am Irish and live in Dublin. I can assure you that Matteo will have a fantastic time here!! The friendliness of the Irish is true and we love Italians. Best wishes, Carol :) x

PS But do make sure he packs a raincoat!

Dolly ha detto...

That is wonderful news Rosanna. I live in Ireland, though I am not Irish, and I am sure Ireland's people will be as welcoming to him as to me. I am sure he will be absolutely fine here, though I can understand it must be difficult for parents. But you can always come and visit. Do let me know if he comes to Cork! And congratulations to Matteo!

Congratulations Matteo! How wonderful! I spent one year in the USA as an exchange student when I was 18 (many years ago;))and it was the best experience of my life. Will you be hosting a student in return Rosanna?

Rosanna, remember this lovely poem by Diane Sibold?

Children come and gather round
Be very still, don't make a sound
This is what I have to say
Keep it with you every day

I wish I had the magic touch
For each of you I love so much
I'd protect you day and night
I'd keep you safe within my sight

But oh so soon this will be
One by one you'll say to me
That you must go, to find your way
Within my sight you cannot stay

That is why I'll make it clear
If you need me I'll be here
Into this world you came through me
So till the day no more I see
Remember here you have a home
Never do you have to roam

I am sure Matteo will know and look forward to coming home to you after every trip :)

Dear Rosana
I never knew you had another blog- you certainly have me on your following list for this one.
I'm sure Mateo will have a great experience!
All the best
Ciao
