Another nail biting episode of Mary Smith’s Pakistan adventure with her husband still a hostage and a baby on the way… Life goes on however with work to be done. But it must have been a dreadful time for the both and as always I come away in awe of Mary and her courage under fire.. Brilliant episode with more to come.. #recommended
I’m sorry I left you for so long wondering if Jon got out of his Afghan jail before our baby arrived in the world.
It was the shock when reading my diary at how very miserable I was stuck in Quetta waiting for news. Over the years I’ve succeeded in turning the story of Jon’s kidnap while I was pregnant into an amusing dinner party anecdote. If anyone had asked me how I felt being pregnant in Pakistan I’d have said it was absolutely fine – sailed through it.
In fact, I was an emotional, blubbering wreck who cried a lot and raged in my diary. I suspect it was writing my thoughts and fears every day which saved my sanity – and allowed me to put on a brave face in front of other people.
