Daughter Returns To Guatemala To Surprise Dad After Seven Years

A woman who moved to the United States when she was a little girl returned to Guatemala to surprise her dad after seven years apart. Evasofia Leon, 26, moved from Guatemala to California when she was nine years old, with her mom and mom's boyfriend. Almost every summer during her younger years, Evasofia would return home during the summer breaks to be with her father, Jorge, 49. However, after graduating high school, Evasofia spent more than half a decade without going home – a combination of not being able to get time off work, and international travel restrictions due to covid. That all changed this year, though, when Evasofia managed to plan a surprise trip which she planned with her uncle so her dad wouldn’t find out in advance.
