Five days later, Enrique is driven to Orlando, Florida in a green van. Lourdes’s boyfriend picks up Enrique there, and they drive to North Carolina. On May 28th, after traveling 122 days and over 12,000 miles, Enrique finally reunites with his mother. He bounds up the steps to Lourdes’s trailer and runs inside to find his mother in bed. They hug and kiss, but they do not cry. Enrique finds life with Lourdes to be difficult. Children like Enrique dream of finding their mothers and living happily ever after, but reality soon sets in. The children show resentment for being abandoned, especially when they confront the new families their mothers have made.
