      ... and I were married at that mosque. The pain from the death of my baby was still fresh in my mind but easier to overcome. Roni and I tried for a new baby and not long after I was pregnant again. Roni’s job as a merchant required him to move about and since I was pregnant he didn’t want me to come.
