I have been a mother for half a year. My child was an old Baby Born doll, which I transformed into a blue, fluffy alien monkey and named him Hubert – short Hubi. I carried him with me everywhere I went, for the duration of 6 months and wanted to see andexperience whether I would be able to establish an emotional bonding. I asked a friend to think of a date within the next 6 months on which she would contact me to tell me that the time is up. On that day, I drove to the outskirts of Groningen and left my babyboy in front of a supermarket with a sign around its neck, saying „Please take good care of me.“. My hope was
that he would get adopted by a new mother or father. Until today I feel guilty for leaving him there.
