Mother And Son Reunited After Years Apart

Posted: Updated:

A mother and son are reunited in San Diego, California after thirty-five years.

David Amaya Barrick first made headlines three weeks ago when he tried to cross the US border illegally from Mexico.

Upon his arrest, the thirty-seven year old was able to prove he was a US citizen, born in Chicago.

It turns out that he was taken to Mexico back in the seventies by his father, and separated from his mother Kathy Amaya for three decades.

Thanks to Pastor Freddy Rivas, David is reunited with his long lost mom.

"This is my reward to see a mother and a son that was lost for 34 years reunite again," said Pastor Rivas.

Since David has been in Mexico all of his life, he doesn't speak English, but plans to learn the language and settle down in San Diego.

"We're going to spend time with each other, with the help of him. Make up for lost time," said his mother.
