Diana came to Friendship Park with her family: her mother Reyna, her aunt Juanita, and their children. They came from Escondido, California. On the Mexican side they met their grandmother, Joaquina, who came from the state of Toluca in Mexico. It had been nearly 20 years since they had seen each other. Their wish is to be able to hug their grandmother in the near future.

Diana llegó al Parque de la Amistad con su familia, su mamá Reyna, su tía Juanita y sus hijos. Ellos son de Escondido, California. Del lado mexicano estaba su abuelita Joaquina quien vino desde Toluca,  Estado de México. Ellos tenían cerca de 20 años de no verse. Desean tener la posibilidad de abrazarse en un futuro no muy lejano.

The Friends of Friendship Park is a non-partisan, grassroots coalition of individuals and organizations advocating for increased public access to the historic meeting place on the US-Mexico border.  For more information contact:
