In 2006. Roseline and her daughter Faith were still living in our house on Romaniuk drive, in Richmond.
I had never before had children in my house before the age of three, but I have had Faith in our house from birth.

Gaëlle had stayed in Seattle at the University of Washington for only two years, and she had been back in Richmond. We had managed for her to become a "landed immigrant" (permanent resident).

Betty was then living with her second serious boyfriend and she had give birth to Nathaneil, my first grandson, in January 2005.

Roseline was 28 years old and Gaëlle was 22, but neither of them was ready to leave and be independent from dad.

I wanted to buy a week-end and vacation house not to far from Vancouver, but I had realized that I could not do it without selling our house in Richmond.

As I did not want to kick them out of the house, I explained to them that I wanted to sell the house. I rented an apartment in Vancouver and I told my two daughters that they could stay as long as they wanted in the house, but as long as they stayed, I would not be able to sell the house and buy another one.

The 3 bedroom apartment I had rented was in fact the upper half of a house, with two one bedroom apartment in the lower floor.

I was sleeping in the master bedroom and using one of the other bedrooms as my office. The third bedroom was for Gaëlle, if she wanted to live with me, but she never stayed permanently in the apartment, only occasionally.

It took my two daughters several months before they left the house on Romaniuk drive. When they were ready to leave, I started to look for a house where my daughters would be happy to spend week-end and vacations.
