the-family.jpg.jpegsibling.jpgbro-sis.jpg.jpegFaces of a happy family of Thursday morning May 26, 2016 when the Siblings were reunited at last with their Biological mother in Puerto Princesa, Palawan after being apart together for 6 years.
Aboard 2GO Passenger Vessel from Manila North Harbour to Puerto Princesa port of Palawan, have travelled 19 hours on the sea,  the siblings (Jomar, John Mark and Mary Jane) was accompanied by the ICCP Administrator to re-integrate the children to their own biological mother and new step-father who are now living in Palawan.
Six years ago these children lost their way going to their new home location while they are walking to transfer in another place, when later on they found out that their mother and step-father are not following them anymore. They have experienced physical abused and neglected by the family.
The mother was able to locate the children who are staying in ICC Philippines Residential Care facility through the referring DSWD office and visited them immediately. She cannot show legal documents like Birth Certificate to prove she is their mother, fortunately, the children have recognized her as their long lost mother.
She needed ample time to make it up with the children, save money, fix the children’s Birth Certificate and determination before she could establish stronger family ties again and able to get them back again. Having a simple but happy life with her new partner with 2 younger daughters makes her even desire to re-unite with them her 3 older children.
Although all basic necessities, love and care were given to the three siblings by their house parents and ICCP family, their talent in music and Bible Verse memorization makes them loved by the other children and people around and even though they were physically abused by the former step-father and was neglected still they wished and pray to be with their own real family, their mother and so their prayer request was granted and by the grace of the Lord they were HOME at last.
