Emotional Dad Surprised By Sister He Has Not Seen In 25 Years

A dad who moved to the United States cried happy tears when he removed a blindfold and was surprised by his beloved sister, who he had not seen in 25 years. A wave of emotions came over Omar Fuentes, 51, as he set eyes on his sister, Miriam, 54, in his daughter’s Maryland home. The moment ended a quarter of a century of waiting for Omar, who left his native Honduras at the beginning of the 2000s, seeking a new life in the U.S. Some of those years were tough, family members said, as Omar missed the likes of his mom's funeral, and on two occasions Miriam's visa applications failed. But once Miriam was granted approval to enter the U.S., family members worked on getting her a plane ticket for the big surprise, which took place on December 29, 2022.
