I met this mother and father sitting casually in the waiting area of the Dorothy Bailey Health Centre in Georgetown after taking their children for a routine clinic visit. This father had a proud and confident smile on his face as he cordially related the satisfaction that he feels when he can fill in for his wife in bringing the children for clinic appointments. He smilingly admitted, “I have to support my wife because our children’s health is important.” The woman sitting nearby can’t restrain herself. She is so amused by this admission.
