It is no secret that my husband Rory is an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW). He has been for the for the past 13 years. He only gets to spend time with my children Raffy who was 4 at the time he left and Jarod 2 years old, 1 month each year since he left.
Parenting is a challenge event when both parents at home; Making our situation more daunting.
My eldest Raffy, was a relatively quiet child, always with her nose in a book, She is shy around people, I was worried because she was not sociable that she would not have any friends once she starts school. Jarod, my youngest was diagnosed with PDD-NOS Pervasive Developmental Disorders at the age of 3, a year after my husband left to work abroad.
We didn’t plan on being separated so early in our marriage, We were both working but when my husband found himself unemployed for an entire year and with no suitable prospects in sight at least here in Manila. In the end, we agreed that this is a temporary and a hurdle we have to get through.
