Wilco Delhaas

Nellie, a Dutch woman who at 16 years of age was pregnant and married against her will to keep her child. She knew that she wanted more in life. It follows her strong and determent struggle in her young life against all the odds to overcome many problems. At the age twenty she met Wilco who had just arrived back from Australia with his parents after a failed immigration attempt. He was only eighteen, could not find his way and felt a stranger in the Netherlands. They fell in love. Together they took on life’s challenges with many obstacles on the way. She became a nurse, learned French and English, self-educated and became a respected and inspirational person to many. Wilco started as a house painter, worked in a rubber factory but wanted more in life. He took on study courses and with aspiration became an international business manager and entrepreneur. They lived in Holland, France twice and in Holland again before moving to Australia to start a new life and eventually find peace with their children and six grandchildren.
