  28. Thanks for the comments, everyone!

    Yep, that's my husband. He's been working in South Korea for almost three years already. He left when Yue was only five months old, so imagine how difficult it had been for the three of us. Skype made the pain a bit bearable.

    My parents are OFWs too, and when I was a kid we had to make do with just letters and phone calls. Times were harder back then.

    Thank goodness for technology!
