|Being "done-up" by a local woman|
|Dewey from the heat|
Three months away from home was challenging for a home-body, home schooled girl. She learned to rely more on God than she did on me. She learned to push herself when she wanted to curl up and block out the world. She delivered babies, she cooked, she cleaned, she shopped and she walked...a lot. She swam in the ocean, visited a crocodile farm and flew on the world's longest zip line. She conducted pre-natals in a tiny church in the bukid (jungle) and sipped boko (green coconut milk, full of electrolytes) to regain her strength. She laughed, she cried and she prayed.
