Good News: Argentine Woman Emotional After Reunion With Long-Lost Grandson

An elderly Argentine woman hugged her long-lost grandson, Guido, for the first time Wednesday in an emotional meeting, thirty-six years after he was snatched by the country’s then dictatorship. The heart-warming scenes came just a day after Estela Carlotto, the 83-year-old head of the Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo human rights group, learned that her grandson Ignacio Hurban had finally been found thanks to DNA testing. Guido, 36, was taken from his mother Laura shortly after she gave birth to him in detention during the dictatorship’s “dirty war” and given to a couple in the countryside. The family all agreed that finding Guido filled a part of their lives that they felt as though they had lost. Click here for more on this sweet family’s happy reunion!
