Visiting Victoria Bay and Wilderness today left us in awe, but this was quickly tempered with the news that friends of ours are coping with a premature birth and (hopefully mild) birth defect. It appears to be an esophageal defect, that happens very rarely, and just leaves you asking why? It's only natural to put yourself in the shoes of your friends and/or loved ones when they encounter something like this. Feelings of fear, accompanied by hopefulness run through your head, and you just pray that everything will be ok, with time.
Please keep our friends in your thoughts as they deal with this. They're also expats, and I can't imagine how difficult it must be to cope with all of this in a "foreign" country.
