How I came to Norway

October 13, 2016

I grew up in Brazil and I never thought that I was going to move from Brazil. However, in 2003 I met my ex husband in Brazil and we fell in love which resulted in a marriage in 2004. We lived in Brazil for 6 months since I had a daughter of 6 years old. In the beginning It was difficult for me to just leave my family and friends but after 6 months we realised that my daughter would have a better future in Norway so we decided to move to Norway.

We moved to Norway in December in 2004. In the beginning it was a bit hard to integrate into the Norwegian society and I felt a bit lonely sometimes because me ex husband was working offshore and I did not know the language and did not have any friends here.

He is a really good man and he did a lot of good things for me and my daughter but we got married too soon and we did not know each other good enough. After a while we encountered some difficulties in our marriage and decided that it was the best to get a divorce and that we were better off as friends.

I could have decided to move back to Brazil again but I stayed in Norway because of my daughter. Today my daughter is studying for ambulance driver and she wants to become a nurse in the long run.

Now you know how I came to Norway. Today I feel really integrated into the Norwegian society and I have accepted Norwegian citizenship along with my Brazilian citizenship. Even though it didn’t work out with me and my ex husband I really thank him for having brought me to Norway.

    I think Norway is a good country for a child to grow up in. Maybe you can travel with her to Brazil some time. I guess there’s a lot to see there.

    Wow I just done the maths,you had her very young if you are just 35 now. Good for you for remaining in Norway with a small child so young yourself, I’m sure one day she will look at her mother and realise what it means to be a strong women.

    You hardly look old enough to have a daughter her age. I appreciate you sharing. My blog is themed and part parody so I don’t use it as a platform for sharing personal data but maybe will eventually. I realize how nice it is for the reader to “know” the writer.

    You left a beautiful country to move to a beautiful country. Are you visiting at all? I was in a relationship with a Swiss-Brazilian living in Sao Paulo for almost 5 years many years ago and spent a lot of time in Brazil. I was close to move to Brazil at one point but then we realized that we were not meant for each other…
