On most days, you can always catch her with her hands full but don’t let that fool you. This mother of four has more to her than meets the eye. MOTHER’S INSTINCTS Dorta D. Piacot was born and raised in Kabayan, Benguet. For all her life, she had always known that she would be a mother. It is in the same town where she met her life partner and father of her children, Sergio. “Friend suna ni ading ko sunga makipaspasyar kunwari ijay balay mi, ngem balak na agarem gyam kanu a. Dayta ma’am, after graduation ko ti college, nagkasar kami bigla, awan ti nabayag nga tiempo nga nagaygayeman (He was a friend of my youngest sibling who always tags along whenever he comes home, only to find out he was only there because he has a crush on me, and then it happened. Right after college we skipped courtship and got married and started our own family)”, Dorta shared. Sergio Piacot is a miner. On other days, he gets his hands on whatever work that he can so as to provide three meals on his family’s table. They were blessed with four children namely Giovanni – 18, Sonwright – 16, Rio Krielle – 13, and Carvin Ralph – 10. Their eldest son dropped out of school at an early age to help out the family by working prior to being beneficiaries of Pantawid Pamilya. The other three are enrolled, monitored, and are doing well in school. WOMAN, YOU CAN Before, Dorta was just like every other housekeeper busy tending to the needs of her family. But nowadays, you can see her in almost every event in the barangay and nearby areas always on the go and ready to lend a helping hand. On 2011, their family was included in the program as Set 4C. On the same year, she became a Parent Leader in their area who just passed the crown this year to venture on a different road. KALAHISerye 2016|| 62
