Who Wants To Adopt A Baby?

Photo linked from Adoption Networking
Update. Though the baby is yet to be born in April, the mother has already chosen the parents who will take care of her baby. Thank you to all who expressed their interest to adopt the baby.

My family is currently sheltering a pregnant woman. She used to serve as "kasambahay" (household helper) in Novaliches. When her employer learned about her pregnancy, she was fired and sent away. Nowhere to stay, a former household helper in our family then asked for my sister's help to accommodate her.

The mother is to give birth this April. She wants to give her baby for adoption. The father of the baby is nowhere to be found and doesn't want to be found.

The mother grew up in Gen. Santos in Mindanao in a neighborhood where Manny Pacquiao grew up. Her husband died when she was pregnant with her first(?) daughter/son. Her first child who is now leaving in the province is now 18. While serving as helper for a family in Novaliches, he met a young man who supposedly became her boyfriend later. Her boyfriend didn't want to recognize the child because he believed that it wasn't his. Sounds like a TV soap, huh! But this story is true.

We advised the mother to bring her baby to her hometown so that her daughter could take care of the baby while she is working in Manila. But she's definite that she wanted to give her baby for adoption so that the baby could have a better life and education.

If there's anyone interested, please let me know.

I-Witness's "Minsan Sa Isang Taon" By Kara David

A beautiful documentary that subliminally projects an irony of life.

"Minsan Sa Isang Taon" (Once A Year), an I-Witness documentary (aired Oct 8, 2012, GMA Network) by Kara David may look like a simple documentary but it's not. It's depth has significant things to say.

"Minsan Sa Isang Taon" weaved paper bills (cash, money) to be the irony of abaca, also called Manila hemp. A year of hard work produced 20 kilos of abaca fibers. When sold, those fibers are worth 1000 pesos. Imagine earning 1000 pesos a year for a family of more than 5! Those cash bills that the hard-working man was holding were made of a few fibers of abaca compared to 20 kilos of fibers that he produced for a year. Quite an irony!

We perceive money as symbol of wealth; yet what it's made of is a symbol of indigence. What happens now to the truth that hard work is the key to success? Somewhere in between must be missing.

The abaca farmer is surrounded with gifts of nature - hills, tre…
