Paraguayan Mother and Son are Reunited

This is a nice Mother’s Day story about a Paraguayan mother who came to the US to be a nanny to send money home to her family.  Even as a nurse in Paraguay her family struggled financially.  Unfortunately too many Paraguayan women have had to leave their families and country to send back money.  The Paraguayan economy is doing fairly well now and here is hoping that this will produce more good jobs so this type of emigration is less common.

  1. J, I assume Blanco came here legally on a work visa/green card? Hopefully, she’s not another illegal “house help” that several politicians in New York were previously implicated in hiring, then sometimes paying minimal amounts for their services. If she’s earning $30K/yr, she’s doing fairly well, but perhaps not equal to her nurse skill level.
