Two young women search for their long-lost relations.
I don't think it was her responsibility just because her biological family spoke spanish that she had to teach her it. Maybe she tried and didn't want to learn. You don't know exactly what happened, if she wanted to, she could of learned later on as well. We don't know. But roflcoperterz, Can you say it in an any more rude way? "You hispanics"? No one should have to leave their "old language" AKA FIRST language just because another country speaks a majority of a different one. If you moved to france, would you be ok with never speaking english again? I doubt it. Don't be a jerk about it, There's nothing wrong with speaking your first language. Besides, Some hispanics or actually ALOT are BORN here, and there's nothing wrong with wanting to learn spanish. Besides, more schools teach a second language as a requirment.
If I was a mother of twins I would make sure that they go to the same home if not stay with me I would do my damndest to raise those children regardless of the living situations! The reason I would make sure they go to the same household if I would to put them up for adoption is because I wouldn't want them to go thru what these too went thru! They all need to be a family!
I know how it is to have a loved one go off to sea, my uncle was off to see when I was 3 years old and I finally got to meet him when I was 3. We had a family reunion at the airport, just because there was also an aunt that I had just met a few months before the airport incident and my uncle had never met her either, it was his much older sister who my grandma was forced to put up for adoption when she was 18. We have had the best family life after finding her and I couldn't ask for anything more than my 6 aunts and uncles that my grandmother gave birth too and than of course my one and only loving mother who is the 2 youngest out of the 7!
@ roflcopterz -
first of all the other writer didn't say she was hispanic...and besides there's nothing wrong with being bilingual, especially since her biological family is guadamalan!
That's the problem with you hispanics. You think Spanish should be a priority, even when you live in America. Speak English. You come to a new country for new beginnings, so leave your old language in your old country.
Oh My God........I can't imagine how hard it is to give your child away .... I have a son of 17 months and that thought it's impossibole to me....but i realy understand that Reina's birthmother do it for her best!!!!
Reina's adoptive mother was a good mom, but she should have made sure that Reina spoke Spanish...I feel that this was her responsibility as a parent. It made me sad that Reina and her sister couldn't talk without a translator. That broke my heart. But seeing them reunite made me so joyful.
Seeing Sarah meet up with her sister was so touching, and I cried. I cried a few times watching this episode. I'm so happy for both of them.
This was a great and touching episode. Happy for both of them.
I can really relate to Sarah. I have an older brother and a younger sister and both of them live in New Jersey. I finally got to meet my brother this summer and also got to meet my grandma. After 17 years I met my brother and I am looking forward to the day that I get to meet my younger sister.
I must say MTV, my names Sarah and im 17. i have 9 brothers and sisters on my dads side that i have never got to meet. After watching this episode of True Life last night i thought that i should go find them. Turns out that i was able to find them on Facebook just last night. It was one of the most happiest and amazing moment in my life i was so thankful. I found out they were searching for me as well but had a hard time finding me and didn't really know what i actually looked like since its been many years. But now im in contact with them and we are planning on meeting someday for the first time. I just want to thankyou MTV and this episode to make it all happen.
I agree with all of you girls..amazing episode, amazing stories, amazing people...those girls deserve all the best!
Great episode. I must join the rest and say that I shed a tear. These girls' motivation is really admirable. Good luck in the future :)
This episode was awesome. I cried, it was such a happy episode.
i really dont know why..i never talked to him i've talked to his wife and she said he didnt have much to say, but im not going to give up, but im not going to get my hopes up either.
awww this episode had me in tears .... i know i have bros and sisters out there too just not sure where.... im so glad they they got to meet their siblings .... i hope mtv does an update on this episode ...would like to know how each family is doing
I think that it is so rewarding to be able to meet your siblings from previous marriages or relationships. I tried to meet both of my sisters but was rejected due to the jealousy of my father raising me with my mom. life is a gift so enduring the good the bad and the ugly in the end can be the reward
must be really hard for Reina and Glenda to reconnect to a full extend due to the language barrier and I don't blame Glenda for her feeling toward her mother. I would feel the same way. Still not sure why Reina would want to. I wouldn't give her the pleasure.
this is a really old episode...i want new ones=[
Oh True Life, why must all your shows make me cry so much. =[ I really enjoyed this episode.
i cried my eyes out!!!
wow...why? I'm sorry about that.
