Last Sunday afternoon I drove my mom to the Atlanta International airport and walked her to the gate. She was flying out to Romania to be the sole presenter in a three day conference on child custody law. My mom’s an expert in the field, you see, and someone in Eastern Europe noticed. They brought her from America, all expenses paid, to work with Romanian psychologists on improving child custody practices and care in their country (according to one of the hosts, a harsh dictator from times past disallowed the practice of psychology in Romania for decades, and they were struggling to rebuild).
