Status update | Jan 19th 2010

Bienvenida, Selva -what a beautiful and unusual name! I connected with your story for the obvious reasons, but also because there was a little boy traveling alone in the same plane I took to fly here and his sister asked me to look after him. I do remember his name, and I have his picture posted in my profile, but I never heard from him again after he left the Florida City camp to go with relatives, I think. You had to wait much longer than I did for your parents. I can imagine how strange it must have felt, as you had become a woman since they saw you last. Yes, we survived and we are now letting the world hear how we did it. Un abrazo de bienvenida, Yolanda
