    Wow increíble historia, mi mama siempre dice que uno tiene que saber de dónde viene para saber a dónde va. Qué hermoso que por lo menos visitaste ojalá algún día lo puedas conocer.

    Awww, thank you for sharing such a personal memory with your readers. It’s never easy when you have a relative that you’ve never met, and even if things were not the greatest and people protect you from that person, it’s still nice to know the history about how it all came to be. My dad passed away when I was 18 therefore my son will never be able to meet him but truthfully my dad did not choose the best lifestyle after he and my mom divorced, so my memories of him are far and few but I do have enough good childhood memories and photos that I can share with my son. What is cool though is that my son looks a lot like my dad when he was younger so when his family sees pictures, they can’t believe it and they say that they’re looking at my dad all over again.

    Que historia tan increible, me produjo mucha emoción conocer la forma en la que tu abuela luchó, es admirable saber que se recuperó y luego de tantos abusos aún pudo brindarle un hermoso futuro a sus hijos!

    Wow, you and I have almost the exact story. My dad’s dad also “se robo” a mi abuela while having multiple children with multiple women at the same time. He gave her 10 kids (including a disabled son) and physically abused her and exploited my dad and uncles. She finally left him and gave my dad the idea to come to the US. I’ll always respect the courage it took her to leave. Her legacy is that we are living a better life thanks to her advice. Both my grandparents died before I was born so I just have stories. But I’m happy you were able to see where you come from and fill that part of your heart at least a little more. Great post my friend 😀
