Florentino drives with his family from Oregon to meet his mother at Friendship Park. His children are American citizens and they can go to Tijuana to stay with their grandmother who travels over 2,000 miles from Santa Ines del Monte, Oaxaca to see her son and grandchildren. He has come to the Park twice. The first time he came it had been 12 years since he last saw his mother. He hopes next time he comes he will be able to embrace her.

Florentino viene desde Oregón a encontrarse con su mamá en el Parque de la Amistad. Sus hijos son ciudadanos americanos y ellos pueden cruzar a Tijuana a estar con su abuelita que viaja desde Santa Inés del Monte, Oaxaca, que se encuentra a mas de 3,000 kilometros, para ver su hijo y sus nietos. El ha venido al Parque dos veces en el 2014 y últimamente en mayo del 2016. La primera vez que vino Florentino tenía 12 años sin ver a su mama. El espera que la próxima vez que visite a su mamá en el Parque la pueda abrazar.
