Actress and entrepreneur Dimples Romana made a surprise visit to her daughter Callie who is studying aviation in Australia.
The celebrity mom shared on her Instagram page today, July 19, her emotional meeting with her daughter through a short video.
“@callieahmee is my first born, my rock, my anchor,” Romana said. “And ever since she left for college and stay here in Australia, I’ve been having bad homesickness from not seeing her plus terrible post partum blues pa. @papaboyetonline knows this. Ganito din ako nun kay Alonzo (I am also like this with Alonzo). But he’s so good at handling my post partum blues for me.”
Romana has accepted the fact that it will take time before she sees Callie as her son Alonzo is going to a big school and she has just given birth to baby Elio.
“But the Lord knows how my heart yearns to be with her. And He has heard my silent prayers,” she said.
Romana recalled that they have been waiting for her husband, @papaboyetonline, to get his AUS visa.
“Pero natatagalan (But it was long in coming) and there’s really nothing we can do about it,” she explained.
Until early last week, finally, she got a phone call saying it was her visa that came out first.
“And Ate Callie was scheduled to have her first flying training sesh two days later. So we decided that I fly first, (but of course I cannot stay long, leaving na din in a few days for my boys) but ultimately we didn’t want Ate to feel that, just because a lot of things have been happening in Manila for our new family set up, that she wasn’t a priority anymore and that we can’t be there for her just the same way we’ve always been when she was little up until the time she left for college,” she narrated.
Romana also explained that her daughter is the type who is not vocal about her needs, so she as a parent makes sure that she is sensitive to her children’s needs, whether or not they speak up about it, to make sure no one would feel left out.
“Sacrifices have been made being away from each other, but all in all, as @callieahmee would say every end of day, ‘thank you for TODAY,’” she quoted her daughter.
Romana’s daughter left for Australia last March. JB
