On another note, the husband and murderer of his girl child is in protective custody in jail. The saying "honor among thieves" or something like that, proved accurate as when news of his babies death reached the prison where he was held, other prisoners tried to kill him. His family has money so I am not sure that justice will be served in this case. I think it will but it's not certain. I did promise to share my experiences with you. And this is what I was reading about every day on the way to Bruce's school this week. It's sad, incomprehensible to me, but it is a real part of the culture here....the whole "not wanting girl babies" thing. But please note that not all families feel that way about their girl children. All of the staff we have worked with have girl children and they seem to love them dearly, only one of our cooks expressed that her girl children meant nothing to her and that her only concern was her boy child.
Please believe, this kind of thing won't break me.....it just makes my desire to help empower the woman here by encouraging and helping educate them stronger.
Till next time.
