As mothers celebrate this Sunday (Mother’s Day) with their families, the mom of activist Jonas Burgos will spend the day sending a letter out, hoping it will reach her son who has been missing since 2007.
Like most mothers, Edita Burgos finds Mother’s Day a time to bring back memories with their children as they grew up. In her letter to her missing son, she recalls how she prepared herself for motherhood, even before deciding to get married.
Like most parents, she hoped to bring her children up well and wished that in turn they do the same to their own.
“I told myself that if I got married and would have children, I would do my best to bring them up into God-fearing, loving and generous adults who would one day also have their own families and bring their children up the way I did,” she reads her letter in a video posted on YouTube.
