I am Jet van der Heijden, and I was born in The Netherlands in 1961.
As long as I can remember, people and communication have always fascinated me. Due to this passion I started traveling the world when I was 19 years old, to learn about other cultures and languages. I speak Dutch, Spanish, English, German, Italian and French. Always following my heart, and after many detours, I found my home in Spain. Spanish became my second mother tongue, as a result of which I can assist you in every aspect.
The death of my little son Robin (2002) has made me conscious of the ephemeral nature of life. I have also learned that it is not the time one spends on earth but the impression one leaves behind that counts. Thanks to Robin I have experienced the unconditional love of being a mother, the very vulnerability of a mother, and the immense power inside of me to survive this enormous loss.
The possibility to create the farewell from my heart was balm for my wounds, and helped me so much in my mourning. I will always remember the this with a warm feeling. Robin also gave me a new mission - to help others in a simular situation. That is how Adiós con Amor was born.
