Son Surprises Mom With Roses For Number Of Years Apart

A man who had been separated from his mom for six years while he aimed to secure a visa surprised her with a dozen roses for every year they were apart. When Kevin was 17 he discovered he was undocumented, meaning he could not get a job, go to school or get a driver's license in the United States. As a result, he moved from his family home in Oregon to live with family in his native Mexico, where he was born and later taken to the U.S. with his mom, Elizabeth. Kevin thought the process would be swift, but he received multiple visa denials while living back home with his grandma. Eventually, Kevin got a job working for the Governor of Jalisco, who signed a letter to the English consulate so that he could obtain a student visa. Kevin wanted to make up for the lost time. Kevin surprised his mom carrying a dozen roses – one dozen for every year they had been apart.
