One Man and a Baby

A dear friend who I met in my very first Khmer class has had a sudden loss.


His ‘Khmer Mom’ was diagnosed with incurable cancer.  She chose to forgo chemotherapy and pass away peaceably.

And a barang (foreign) child protection expert has suddenly found he’s the legal, local guardian of a 5 year old child.  (The mother lives overseas. Trust me, it’s complicated.)


I rarely use social media for ‘help wanted’ ads, etc. but if you know of experienced baby sitters, nannies and child minders in Phnom Penh, please drop me a line: .
