Dad is in prison for a lengthy stay and there are several moms, one poorer than the next. Life in a developing country is an interesting challenge without trying to prop up, feed and educate six children who speak a different language. Just when I think we are all moving forward something unforseen and unusual happens. In spite of all the obstacles it is refreshing to see children who are thrilled by a "green" ice cream cone or by seeing a photograph of themselves.
