1991: "In 1991 Erwin, another son was born."

2000: "Then much earlier than usual, Ely and his good friend and cousin, Esau left by the end of 2000. The average age of independence for males is 14. Ely and Esau were only 10 years old. By the end of 2002 Erwin, left behind, decided to join the roving young males. He was only 11 years old. We saw them from time to time after they left but now they seem to have moved far away probably into Tanzania where they're hanging out with the big guys."
