Netizen emotional after finally getting to hug mom after 29 years apart

A netizen shared his emotional reunion with his long-lost mom, whom he did not see for 29 years.

In a Facebook post, John Michael Muaña said he has been looking forward to the moment when he can finally hug his mother again and he cannot believe that it finally came true.

When he was 2 years old, John Michael’s parents separated ways and his father decided to leave him to his relatives because he had to work far away.

“Hanggang ngayon hindi pa din ako makapaniwala. Parang panaginip lang lahat… Mula ng 2yrs. old ng iniwan at mawalay ako sa inyo at lumaki sa ibang pamilya, Mula po noon wala akong hinihiling tuwing kaarawan ko kundi ang makita kayo ng kapatid ko at maramdaman ang yakap mo. Lord Napakabuti mo. Salamat Ama,” he said in a post.

Meanwhile, he told KAMI that his manager helped him look for his mom and they found out that she is living in Isabela.

“Tinulungan ako ng napakabuting manager sa Jollibee na mahanap at makita at mapuntahan ang nanay ko at sa Isabela namin sya nakita. 29 yrs. ko nang di sya nakikita, sinamahan ako ng manager ko dati at mga kaibigan ko para isorpresa,” he said.

He expressed his gratitude to everyone who helped him in his journey of looking for his mom.

“Lord Napakabuti mo. Salamat Ama. Lalo na sa mga taong ginawa nyong instrumento na samahan ako upang tulungan akong makita at mahanap ang totoong Nanay ko, alam nyo kung sino kayo. Hindi ko alam kung sa paanong paraan ako makakapagpasalamat at makakabawi sa inyo. Diyos na ang bahala sa kabutihan nyo.”

Even if he already found his real mom, he said is still thankful to the family who raised him.

“Salamat sa pag-aruga, sakripisyo, pagmamahal dahil itinuring nyo akong tunay na anak. Mahal na mahal ko po kayong lahat.”
