Rosalie Villanueva, 35, stands on a beach in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates on Feb. 2007. Rosalie, who works at the Al Rahba Hospital as a nurse, met her husband Christopher Villanueva while they were both OFWs working overseas. They both later got jobs in Abu Dhabi, but decided to leave one of their three children, Precious Lara, with Rosalie's parents in the Philippines. Isolation and damaged family relations due to time spent apart is one of the major sacrifices made by OFWs.
