“God did not give us a child, and when God does not give, we cannot do anything about it. I have been married for 45 years and we have been living happily with my wife. However, we never experienced the feeling of having a child together. I am now old, I’m seventy seven years old, I can’t do any labor work anymore and that is why for about 3 years I have been working for someone taking care of their hand made bee hives. I work all month but three days for a low salary. My wife has several diseases and is now resting at home, sometimes she gets up and gets some work done. Despite all of this, as long as I am able to work, I am happy to stay like this. I have been stung by the bees many times, it is not an easy job to do and it is in fact very sensitive work. I don’t really know that much about it but the owner knows a lot more.”
