Sisters Raised In US Travel To Mexico To Meet Grandparents For First Time

A pair of sisters born and raised in New York to immigrant parents have finally been able to travel to Mexico to meet their grandparents for the very first time after more than two decades. Brenda and Cindy Romero were born and raised in the Bronx, New York, but due to their parents' ongoing efforts to adjust their immigration status, the pair couldn’t travel to Mexico. Brenda, 21, said the process started when she was around 10 or 11, and due to many difficulties over the years with lawyers, Brenda and Cindy, 24, decided it was time to travel to Mexico themselves, given they could return to the U.S. as citizens. The pair flew to Puebla in Mexico on April 24, sharing an emotional first meeting with grandma Ángela Acosta, 79, Margarita’s mom, and separately, their grandfather, Benito Romero, 72, Ignacio’s dad. Both meetings were bittersweet, they admitted, as although it was the first time they had met their grandparents, it was also the closest their elders had been to their own children in 25 years. Over the days that followed, Brenda and Cindy were finally able to explore their mom's childhood home, something they had always dreamed of.
