My mother was born Appolina De La Hors Portal (I believe this is correct) She was adopted by Christina Amor (originally from Spain) at a young age (in Cuba). My mother was contacted years ago by her older brother who remembered her before she was placed with another family and brought to America. He told her that she has a large family in Miami including a sister that looks just like her. My mother is turning 60 next year and for her birthday I would love to reunite her with her real brothers and sisters that she has never met. I to would love to meet all of my cousins in Miami if there is anything that can be done it would be much appreciated.

I arrived in Miami on August 10, 1961 at the age of 6. I was unescorted. Would I be considered part of the Pedro Pan program if I was in no way associated with the Cahtolic Church or related programs?

My mother was a pedro pan and is now being told she entered the country illegally. She came to the US when she was 13 and married my father (a U.S. Citizen) when she was 18. She is trying to receive Social Security benefits as well as my father's retirement benefits, but is now being told she entered illegally and that they have no record of her. She does not have her green card and she has never become a citizen. Immigration is questioning the existence of the Pedro Pan program due to the age difference between my mother and the representatives at the immigration offices. All of my mother's family from Cuba is deceased and she has only her birth certificate. At one point she was issued a Social Security card. Can you please advise as to where or whom I can contact to get some kind of documentation to prove my mother came into this country legally. Thank you very much.
