we had been back before with Lea .... but that was to pick up our boys. this was a different visit .... it was a visit who's purpose was to re-engage with the roots that give her the foundation of her heritage .... she may be aussie now .... and proudly so. but her roots are in the philippines .... and owning roots is as hard as it is rewarding.
we teach our kids to be proud of being filipino .... PINOY AND PROUD is a comment that you will hear around our home. and talking about all things filipino is not uncommon either. but to live it ... just "be" in amongst a group of people who share your birth right .... nothing can beat that.
