Man Reunites With Grandma Who Raised Him Before He Moved To US

A man who moved to the United States for a better life could not fight back tears as he returned to his California home on his birthday to discover the grandmother who raised him. David Salas had not seen his grandma Ana Belen for more than four years. David never knew his father and his mother could not raise him, so Ana, from Bogota, Colombia, took over such duties. David grew up seeing Ana as a mother, but in 2017 he decided to move to America for a better life, which his grandmother fully supported. Family is everything for David, and his fiancee Maria secretly helped arrange Ana's flights, navigated her through the airport, collected her, and went with her to buy a cake and decorations before David returned home. As soon as David, 23, saw the familiar face staring back at him, he immediately headed over to Ana, 65, for a long-await hug – a moment put on hold due to his move, building a new life and the coronavirus pandemic.
