I took this photo on the day of the celebration of Tabaski, 2006 in Brouwal Tappe, Guinea. This is my host mother at my site with her baby. My host mother had 5 of her own children, plus me made 6. I love to remember her this way because she was the most caring, beautiful person I knew in my Peace Corps service. Her baby and I both had the same Guinean name, so sometimes she would call her baby "Slawa" to joke around with me.
