After giving birth to her third child Elio last June, actress Dimples Romana flew out of the country earlier this month to spend time with her eldest daughter Callie who left for Australia last year to fulfill her dream of taking up Aviation Management at the Southern Cross University. On July 19, the proud mom shared a milestone in her daughter’s life after being there to witness Callie’s maiden flight.
In her latest Instagram post, Dimples shared the video of herself surprising Callie with a bouquet of flowers before taking her first flight.
She wrote, “@callieahmee is my first born, my rock, my anchor ️And ever since she left for college and stay here in Australia, I’ve been having bad homesickness from not seeing her plus terrible postpartum blues pa. @papaboyetonline knows this. Ganito din ako nun kay Alonzo. But he’s so good at handling my postpartum blues for me..
Tinanggap ko naman nang matagal bago kami magkikita ulit ni Ate. Kuya Alonzo is going to big school na, I was going to give birth to Elio and basically all the odds were against Callie and I being together and I, being there for her for her milestones here as a student pilot. But the Lord knows how my heart yearns to be with her. And He has heard my silent prayers.”
In the post, Dimples also explained why her husband was not able to join her in the trip even though he had also wanted to be present for that unforgettable day for their family.
“Long story short, we have been waiting for @papaboyetonline to get his AUS visa Pero natatagalan and there’s really nothing we can do about it. Til early last week when we got a phone call that it was only MY 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.
“Ate din ako, panganay, at kadalasan even if I wanted to say I needed my family more, I won’t say it. Lagi ko kasing iniisip na baka mas kailangan ng mga kapatid ko. Hindi pa man din nagsasalita itong anak namin ‘to. She’d rather keep it to herself than tell us she needs us. Napakabait. So here’s @papaboyetonline and I making sure that ALL our children, regardless of age, milestones and locations, would ever feel they’re any less valued than their other siblings.
“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 wrote.
On Dimples’s husband’s account, Boyet also shared his proud dad moment by posting Callie’s video that Dimples sent to him from Australia.
