Twenty Year Old Reunion.
February 5, 2009 12:59pm CST
Did anyone see the story about the brother and sister kidnapped by their maternal granparents in 1989 and are now being reunited with their parents after twenty years. The brother and sister, one was 7 at the time and the other 8, making them 27 and 28. I know as a parent that is just a rush of emotion to actually find your children after twenty years. I would be happy, sad, scared, excited, and puzzled all in one. Their whole lives they were alive and well and I had no clue and for my parents to be the culprits behind their disapperance. I don't know that's a very happy and very sad story all in one. Were they not in contact with their parents and parents in laws for twenty years?

Wow, feels good to know the kids finally get a chance to meet their parents after such a long gap! I think it won't be very happy moment. The people on either sides ie the children and the parents would be more curious than being happy. They lost all those years that they could have been together and known, understood each other. Now I think the will need a lot of time to build such a bonding that is persists between parents and their children. This is a bit strange. Worth noticing!

I've seen things like these on television a lot. In my home country, there's a show like this that brings people together that live far away or that haven't seen each other for a long time. I remember that there were some fascinating cases similar to the one you described of mothers and fathers that haven't seen their daughters or sons for one reason or another, and the show brought them together. It's always a surprise too, and they don't tell the person they're reuninting in order to see their reaction to the full extent. From what I've seen, these types of reunions are, as you already mentioned, very emotional. I can't imagine nor describe what I would possibly be feeling at a moment like that, but from what I've seen, the misfortunes of these people are much to be pitied. It must be horrible having such a close relative that you haven't seen or seen a very long time ago. You asked why this happens, and from the show I've seen it has usually been to agreements between the father and the mother and then the seperation of one from the children, or due to reasons such as war or the father or mother going away somewhere. These usually are not the intentions of the parents, but sadly, it really does happen and I think it's great that these people have the fortune to be reunited after so many years of time and restore contact. It's a sad story with, luckily, a happy ending.
