This is the moment a homeless man spoke to his daughter for the first time in 20 years. The two lost touch after the man lost contact with his children in the wake of his divorce.
Pedro “Tony” Abrego said a 10-year friendship he struck with Juan, a liquor store employee, helped him reconnect with his family.With Juan’s help, Mr Abrego posted a photo of himself on Facebook and received a message from his daughter after only two days.
Juan said: “His daughter inboxed me and she said they have been looking for him for years.”He’s looking for his kids and he wants to see them before he dies.”
The first phone conversation between father and daughter was very emotional.
Still shaken from hearing his daughter’s voice, Tony was full of praise for Juan.Mr Abrego told a friend he wants to see his family again before he dies
He said: “Juan is a good man, a nice man, he has a good heart.”Arrangements are now being made for a family get-together.The family is said to be willing to forgive Mr Abrego’s long absence.
