Hug Your Kids – Even Argentina 32 Years Late

Dad from Argentina hugs son for the first time, 32 years after birth

Did you read the story about the Argentine dad, Abel Madariaga, whose pregnant wife was kidnapped 33 years ago? Long story short, thanks to the Grandmothers of the Paza de Mayo rights group, the dad and son were recently reunited. Wow!

What did dad say? “Hugging him that first time, it was as if I filled a hole in my sole.”

Can you imagine waiting 32 years to hug your child for the first time? Go hug your kids right now – or call them and tell them you love them. Hugs matter. Hugs heal.

  1. Wow! 33 years of being kidnapped is very long and for me it is a miracle that Abel got the chance the see his son again. I would definitely hug mine as soon as i’m done here at work.

  2. You’re right, Kimberley, it’s a miracle, indeed!
