Sisters Noemi, Ana, and Maria come from Sacramento with their families to visit their mother Carmen. She traveled hours from Sinaloa to visit her daughters.  Noemi and Manuel got engaged at Friendship Park in order to have their mother with them in the Mexican side. Their grandmother has come to visit them too. Every 3 to 4 months, they drive more than 9 hours to stay with their mother during the time the Park is open. They all wish to come one weekend and find that they can give them a hug.​

Las hermanas Noemi, Ana, y Maria vienen desde Sacramento, California con sus familias a visitar a su mamá Carmen, que tiene que viajar por horas desde Sinaloa para visitar a sus hijas. Noemí y Manuel se comprometieron en el Parque el año pasado para que Carmen pudiera estar junto a ellas desde el lado mexicano. Su abuelita también ha viajado para visitar a sus nietas. Cada 3 o 4 meses, ellas manejan cerca de 9 horas para encontrarse con su mamá durante el tiempo que el Parque esta abierto. Ellas desean que en uno de sus viajes encuentren que pueden abrazar a su mamá.

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:
