A young couple from Los Angeles, Randy Emmans-Baylin and her boyfriend John Suazo, have been involved in charity work. They have been helping people in difficult life situations since 2014.
As part of a social project, they raise money for small humanitarian kits, which they then distribute to the homeless.
Randy, John and other volunteers are shopping for backpacks with provisions, clothing and household items. In this way they have helped hundreds of people.
However, today’s story will be a little different. The picture below shows the couple and a homeless man named Pedro.
This photo was taken on the day Pedro finally saw his family after 20 years of separation.
For 20 whole years he did not know if his relatives were alive, if they wanted to see him, if they remembered him. But their meeting dispelled all doubts. The family searched for Pedro, waited and hoped for his return.
The reasons for the quarrel between Pedro and his family are not specified. However, the life of a man all these long years was not easy.
He was left without documents and money, he completely gave up. Pedro lived on the street for the last few years.
One day Randy saw him. The girl brought him a backpack with food, and they started talking.
It turned out that Pedro was not always homeless, that once he had a family, a job, he studied.
In general, Pedro impressed Randy as a kind and sensible person. He said that he only remembers the address and name of his grandmother.
Thus, the search for Pedro’s relatives began.
Randy and John spent a lot of time to find the man’s relatives.
As a result, they managed to find his uncle, who lived in the city of Charleston (this is 4,200 kilometers from Los Angeles).
Hearing that Pedro was alive and well and wanted to meet, the uncle burst into tears and literally a few days later was already hugging his nephew.
This is how the meeting between Pedro and his family went. According to Randy, it was very emotional, it was impossible to hold back the tears.
Randy and John invited Pedro and his relatives to a café to celebrate the reunion.
The next day, Pedro was taken to Charleston. Pedro plans to return to normal life.
