William and his Bà

01 December 2016

“I just want them to love each other and live together in happiness.”

William's Bà talks about her number one grandson

Even though Bà only speaks Vietnamese, and her grandson William is deaf, their love for one another is crystal clear. Ba smiles at her grandson: “William, number one. I love you.”

Ba moved to Australia from Vietnam in 1983. She often took care of William when he was young.

“He was such a nice boy, no crying or being naughty at all,” she said.

Ba was over the moon when William met his current boyfriend, Michael.

“Michael is a good and decent guy and I'm happy with their relationship,” Ba explained.

“Boyfriend or girlfriend is the same kind of love, there is no difference.”

“We are living in a society where we should let them be themselves – as parents, all we want is to see our children happy,” she said.

“I just want them to love each other and live together in happiness.”
