Meanwhile, back on the island of Saipan

bilocation: Bilocation, or sometimes multilocation, is a term used to describe the ability/instances in which an individual or object is said to be, or appears to be, located in two distinct places at the same instant in time. 

With that said, if you, too, happen to be on the island of Saipan at this very moment, you can head over to the Commonwealth Health Center–Saipan’s single hospital–and pick up a copy of a very touching book entitled The Boy Who Dreamed to Be With His Parents on Saipan by Riza Oledan-Ramos. Riza is a nurse on Saipan who I helped publish her first book. It gives a little peak inside a reality that many people never experience. It’s a true story inspired by Riza’s son, and, as people are discovering, is more than a children’s book. It’s akin to a letter written from the perspective of a young mind grappling to understand the world, his place in it, and the emptiness and longing that often comes with having parents who are seeking a better life for the family.  


Emmanuel Ramos misses his mom and dad. They are on the island of Saipan working. He is in Manila, Philippines, with his aunt, cousins and grandparents. Will his parents ever come back for him? Will he ever see them again? Will Emmanuel’s big dream to be with his parents on Saipan ever come true?  

On sale on Saipan! Congrats, Riza!
