After years of an abusive marriage, Mary Ann decided to call it quits.
To support her children, she decided to look for the opportunities in Saudi Arabia but had no one to leave her kids with.
She says that her own mother refused to look after her children. Her father on the other hand cursed her and told her never to attend his burial if he dies.
When she left the kids under the care of her mother in law, they were mistreated and their performance in school dropped drastically.
Mary Ann decided to send her kids to boarding school and when they close, she rents a house for them and entrusts them to the care of a house help.
She has so far spent 5 years in the gulf. Leaving her kids under the care of a househelp is usually not easy because sometimes she lacks a househelp who wants to work only for the one month school holiday.
Mary says despite the challenges, she has become financially secure and now owns 5 plots.
She is hopeful that soon, she will come back to the country and start up a business. She yearns to spend time and bond with her kids.
