[A very pregnant Sarah begins recording a taped message while driving through the Mexican desert.]

Tape 7, November 10...Where was I? What's difficult is trying to decide what to tell you and what not to. But I guess I have a while before you're old enough to understand these tapes. They're more for me at this point just so that I can get it straight.

[pulls up at a gas station; a clerk comes out]

¿Gasolina, por favor?

Gas Station Clerk:

Llena el tanque.

Gas Station Clerk:
Fill 'er up! ¡Sí!

[recording] Should I tell you about your father? Boy, that's a tough one. Will it affect your decision to send him here, knowing that he is your father? If you don't send Kyle, you can never be. God, a person could go crazy thinking about this. I suppose I will tell you. I owe him that. Maybe it'll help if you know that, in the few hours we had together, we loved a lifetime's worth. [stops recording because a boy has just taken a Polaroid picture of her]

Usted es muy hermosa, señora, y tengo apena decirle que me dé cinco dólares americanos, pero si no, mi padre me va a pegar.

[to clerk] What did he just say?

Gas Station Clerk:
He says you're very beautiful, señora, and he's ashamed to ask you for five American dollars for his picture - but if he doesn't, his father will beat him.

Pretty good hustle, kid. [raises four fingers] Cuatro.

¡Sí, sí! [accepts two two-dollar bills] Gracias. [leaves, but calls back a warning] ¡Miren, miren! ¡Allá! ¡Viene una tormenta!

[to clerk] What did he just say?

Gas Station Clerk:
He said there's a storm coming in.

[contemplatively] I know.
