Of course, we’ve met through the Internet. It all started in May 2000 when I was working for a French nuclear giant Framatome in the Kiev rep office and Alex was running his small printing business. We were both sure that it will not last long and that, of course, we will never have children.

The news about my pregnancy came right after we celebrated 9 months of living together and we got married July 28-th 2001, three days after my 20-th birthday, when I was 6 months preganant.

We live in Kiev, which is the capital city of one of the former Soviet republics. I’ve noticed that if someone does know about Ukraine it is mostly due to Chernobyl (so I can’t mention that it is within a 2-hour ride from our house). Ukraine is difficult place to live in, and though we both had a number of chances of not living here – we have suddenly reached that point in our lives, when we became strangely patriotic and fell in love with our culture, landscapes and people.
