What is the most rewarding part of your job?

When someone interrupts me and says, 'Don't worry, you don't have to say anything else, I know what I have to do, I know that I am going to keep my baby and trust God to help me with the details!" Sometimes I am just asking questions about the situation and restating something which they had already told me. So many times it is so obviously the Work of the Lord, and not me!

Why are you pro life?

Because I am alive! I have relatives and friends who would have been aborted if they were born in this era where physical or mental disabilities can be predicted, (not always accurately), before birth. I wear glasses. If there was a test to see if I could see clearly, would that someday become one of the tests which would determine whether or not I should be born?

Do you have any weird phobias?

Fear of being locked out of the house, or locked into a room or building with clues on how to get out!

Where are you from? Where did you grow up?

I was born in the "Land which invented the Steel Band and Calypso." My parents studied in a European country, and I was taught introductory French as a child. I grew up a little there and in the Caribbean.

What are your hobbies?

Dress Making and Design; Crochet and Needlepoint; Line Dancing and studying French.

Who is your favorite fictional character and why?

Jane Eyre. Quiet and introspective, she was an adventurer through books. She weathered the storms of life and other people's misconceptions, and even disapproval, by quiet faith in God and a determination to do what is right, even under duress. A quiet, courageous heroine of simple but strong faith in God.

Who is your pro-life hero or role model?

Joseph (the father of Jesus). He knew the Law and would have attempted to mercifully spare the one he loved from the shame of public stoning; He listened to the Angel of the Lord/The Word of the Lord and took upon himself the responsibility of protecting his betrothed wife and child. He took the risk of being ostracized and shamed, to be obedient to the Word of the Lord to him. He did what was right in the sight of God.
