The past week I have been waking up very early as I know that the time in Iran is 4,5 hours ahead of us. And every day I am receiving a new e-mail from Iran. Either from the editor Ali as also now from the son-in-law Mr. Hosseiny, he is married to Zahra.
Last Friday I received the picture of Tayebeh. I will not publish her picture due to her privacy. I have been staring to the picture and it might be is all I can think of. I am staring at her eyes… something makes me stare longer and longer. Her eyes are filled with a life full of emotions all shown at once. It breaks my heart to think what she’s been through.
Last Saturday I received a picture of Zahra and her kids. Beautiful family. I called her by phone but she didn’t speak English and I unfortunately don’t speak Persian yet. So the call was a bit confusing but I did hear her voice which was nice.
I have ordered the DNA tests last Friday and I received post yesterday. I was curious what it was, not thinking about the DNA test one bit. Hahaha, I am just really surprised that things are moving as fast like the blink of an eye.
Tomorrow I will send the test to Iran, just need to make sure to add a good manuel in Persian for Tayebeh so she exactly knows what to do with it. And then she’ll send it back in good order to me. So I will post the two samples togehter, hers and mine, to Consanguinitas in Tilburg, the Netherlands for the result.
