My Beloved Mothers. 🤱💕
I’ve been blessed to have two mothers in my life, the one who gave birth to me and the one who raised me with nothing but love ever since I was only a few months old.
I sadly had to witness as a child how they both became victims of an abusive husband (my father) who left many open wounds in their hearts and in the hearts of my brothers and sisters.
As I learned to heal my own wounds I can honestly say that I feel nothing but love for my dad and I don’t blame him for anything as I understand that he was also a victim of his own childhood traumas caused by those who raised him.
Last time I was able to see both of my mothers in person was back in 2012 when I left Perú to return to the U.S. with my little daughter in search of a new life and opportunities.
Not too long ago, I asked one of my mothers; what was her dream in life? What would truly make her happy?
To which she answered; “My wish is to be able to see all of you (my siblings and I) together at least once in my life”. A right that was cruelly taken away from her by unjustified circumstances.
Her dream seemed to be hard to fulfill due to the fact that some of us live here in the U.S. and that those who live back home do not hold a valid american visa that would allow them to come and visit us. As for me, I am not yet able to leave the country until my still pending immigration case is approved.
A few hours ago, I informed both of my beloved mothers that I will move earth and sky to make their dream come true even if it’s just me who they’ll get to see. Needless to say, I can not speak, nor can I make decisions on behalf of any of my siblings as I can only represent myself.
I have solely decided to fly both of my mothers to the Mexican border in Tijuana, Baja California. And I will meet them from the U.S. border in San Diego, CA. so that we can reunite and be able to see each other even if it’s through the metal fence that divides both countries.
Despite having $101.76 in my pocket at the time of this post and no set source of income, I am giving myself exactly 7 days from today to put together the amount needed so that I can pay for their travel expenses and be able to make their dream come true.
Given the circumstances this is the most ambitious goal that I have ever set to myself, and I know that I will make it happen because I am not alone in this and God says; “Ask and you shall receive” and I’ve already asked our Creator to allow me to fulfill their dream and bring joy and happiness into the lives of two of the most important persons in my life. But most of all, I truly wish for them to be able to forgive my father so that they can learn to heal their own open wounds and so that he can finally rest in peace. ✨
