“We came back with Kevin Sorbo in our hearts.”

Teresa’s report f100_4888rom the October, 2009 FACTS Convention

On Thurday, October 15, we flew to Brussels to meet with Kevin Sorbo; we went to Ghent – a beautiful city. We were in Brussels on Friday with a girl, Silvia, Italian, really sweet, (and) we walked through the city. (We) went to see the Atomium – impressive – and returned to the hotel because the next day was the day of Kevin Sorbo.

Saturday arrived. We got up at 7 and went to breakfast. (We) tried to get beautiful. On this occasion Amanda, my daughter, and my friend, Sandra, were along.

At the hotel we met Evelyne and her husband from France. They were very (nice), and (we) went towards the entrance (of) FACTS because we had to be there at 9:15. Once inside we kept looking at the stores until it was nearly 10:30 a.m. when we´d get Kevin´s permission to get near his desk.

There, we met our friends Charline from France and Vivianne, a Belgian girl. We are all friIMG_0301ends.

Kevin suddenly came in and said, “hello.” in general without looking at anyone. (He) sat at his table, and he brought a small suitcase from which he started to put pictures up on the table. When everything was placed down on the table he looked up and began to greet people.

IMG_0302There were many people around, but nobody got near – just took a lot of pictures before approaching him. I did a lot of photos and recorded videos… I had many friends waiting to see them…

When I approached (him), Kevin stood up and kissed me for the third time… no one recorded it…buuuuaaaa… I introduced my daughter and we got pictures with Kevin. I congratulated him on his birthday and Octavia´s and Sam´s, which would be shortly… He thanked meSilvia.

I got to the table so many times. I brought photos of friends for him to sign… and made me one pic with Kevin (grinning)…

We went to eat, and then to the photo session with Kevin, (which) was really… I have no words… I can only say that he´s a gift of God for people… very kind, very gentle…

For Evelynemy friend Silvia it was a dream come true for she fell in love with “Hercules” at (age) 13, and now (at) 25 she could be able to finally fall into the arms of Hercules… just like my daughter also did… No, not me! I´m a bit too heavy for him to carry… LOL!

Evelyne was fascinated by Kevin´s height (and) said that next time she´ll bring high heels!

Vivianne also was very excited…

My daughter said she loved learning how very, very nice and good he is…

With Sandra the photo session was also very funny… Well, you will see us all in the videos, ok?Vivanne

The photographer took three hours to give us the photos because the printer broke. It was 15 minutes before 6 p.m. The con was ending, and when we got there with Vivianne (and) Evelyne the actors were not (there). We were very sad, but, when we saw Kevin behind the curtain we asked him if he could sign the photos, and he came! He signed all of them, and we gave him gifts for his kids… I gave him a funny photo of the ladies from (the) Brazilian forum (I was a bit shy about it), but eventually I gave it to him to sign… Ha! Ha! Ha!

SandraWell, after that we said, “goodbye,” with hugs and kisses. Kevin told me it had been a happy day. I thanked him for coming to which he answered, “It has been a pleasure.”

As he said “bye” to my daughter he asked her, “Do not forget me,” and that the trip hadAmanda been worth it.

Kevin: Rest assured that my daughter will never forget you; and if the next time you come, she´s not going to play a basketball game: she will come to see you!

I agree with you, Kevin – it was a great day, and the trip was worth it! Sunday, we went to Bruges, a beautiful city, and back home with Kevin in our hearts.

Kevin, come back soon. We love you. Take care!
