I feel a special connection to the Hamlin’s because when they were working in Princess Tsehai Hospital in the 1960s Dr Reginald Hamlin attended my birth. My mother always remembers his face as an angel who helped her at the time of her deepest need. My life had been blessed so much and I always wondered if he touched and prayed for me for God’s blessing. Beyond the Hamlin’s dedication to helping so many women suffering from fistula, I owe them a wealth of gratitude for unwittingly stepping into my mother’s life and becoming a blessing to our family. I went to medical school, became an American citizen, and now work in the field of public health at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia.
