Mom Emotionally Surprised After Nearly 3 Years Apart By Daughter Who Secretly Traveled To US

A waitress received the surprise of a lifetime when she went to serve drinks to a table only to discover her daughter, who she had not been able to see for nearly three years, sat at the table. Judith Montero had been working at a golf club in Tennessee as a server ever since arriving in the United States from Santa Cruz, Bolivia. She had originally intended to save up and pay for the relevant visas so her daughter, Sofi, could join her in living in the US. But after breaking her hand and being laid off work for a few months throw injury, her original plan was pushed back until 2020. The mom then found her plans further derailed as the pandemic struck, stranding her daughter in Bolivia as borders closed. Judith, who returned to work at the private golf club in Ooltewah, Tennessee, kept her spirits up by dreaming of the day she would finally be reunited with her daughter. As that day drew closer, with borders and international travel returning, she planned for a reunion. But her daughter Sofi had other ideas. She secretly planned, along with her father and Judith’s ex-husband Sergio, Judith’s new boyfriend Mark, and Judith’s co-workers Lauren and Dixie, to sneak into the golf club to surprise her mom early. Unbeknown to Judith, Lauren and Dixie helped Sofi book a table at the golf club’s clubhouse on October 10th. There, she sat at a table and ordered drinks, which Dixie - Judith’s manager - asked Judith to serve before she clocked off for the day. But as she turned the corner, she was stopped dead in her tracks as she caught sight of her daughter Sofi sitting at the table. The emotional mom immediately began to cry, as she finally hugged her daughter after two years and eight months apart.
