"It is a fantastic boy", adds. "What has changed since it arrived? Especially that the first time that spoke with him by telephone do not know neither if we understood us. He did not speak English, neither I Portuguese, so it went a bit comic the truth.  But it is a fantastic boy. Only by the fact that it chose us to us, when had to all Europe behind, says a lot of him. Have a lot of hopes in him".
