One mother shared her sad encounter with her child after 2 years being away from her family. According to the Pinay OFW named Mariabel Delapeña Rustia, she felt happiness and sadness at the same time.
She was overjoyed that she finally met her child again after she left her child to her parents when he was just 7 months for her to be able to work abroad.
After working abroad for 2 years, she went home but it made her sad because her own child doesn’t know her and who he considers as his parents is his grandparents.
Even if it really hurts her, she needed to accept the reality. She even advised her fellow OFWs if they also have the same sutuation and they have children that they left, don’t leave them for so long as possible as they can and grab every opportunity that they will have just to get home.
Being an OFW is not really an easy job especially if you have your own family that will be left because you need to work. They are considered as a new hero due to their sacrifices to work far away from their loved ones just for them to be able to give their needs.
Here is the complete post of the emotional OFW mother:
“Halong emosyonal ang naramdaman ko. Masaya at malungkot.
Pero nung nasa Saudi pa ako.. Tanggap ko na talaga na pagka uwi ko dito sa, pinas. Na talagang hindi na ako kilala ng anak ko. Dahil 7 months pa, lang iniwan ko na sya sa parent ko.
Para makipagsapalaran sa manila hanggang nakita ko ang isang aportunity na makapag abroad. Kala ko kapag abroad makakaahon na kami sa hirap ng buhay.. Kala ko after two years.. MAabibili ko na lahat mga Pangarap ko para sa Pamilya ko.
Hindi pala. Pero ang Mas masakit after two YEARS buhay ofw. Pag uwi ko dito sa pinas di na ako kilala ng anak ko.
Kasi iba na ang kinikilala nya mga MAGULANG..
ang nag alaga sa kanya from 7 months to 3 years old ay ang kanyang Lolo at Lola.
Masakit Pero kelangan ko tanggapin.
Kaya payo ko sa, inyo mga ka ofw ko na Katulad ko may anak na baby. Iniwan nyo dito sa pinas.
Wag nyo na patagalin pa dyan. Habang hindi pa huli ang lahat. Kung may isang apurtunidad na dumating sa inyo dyan habang andyan pa kayo.
Sunggaban nyo.. Grab nyo na.. Kung Alam nyo naman yung aportunity na yun.. Sya magpapauwi sa inyo dito. AT di nyo na kelangan pa ulit mg abroad at iwan yung mga mahal nyo sa buhay dito sa pinas.”
