Montreal, CANADA – Tears of joy don’t usually get someone to the papers but a mother’s love is a force that even our editors can’t ignore.

Cordillerans shy away from showing emotions to the people they cherish. But this trending photo taken at the arrivals area of Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport of a mother from Benguet, Philippines who visited her OFW daughter for the first time in Montreal, Canada speaks volumes, more than a thousand words.

In her Facebook post ‘My Mama’s Adventure’, Jem Orcino, an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) living in Canada describes that her mom didn’t even wait for the wheelchair which they reserved for her. She ran to find and meet her daughter soon as the plane landed, and seatbelts were off. This is her mom’s first ever plane experience.

Despite being exhausted travelling from Baguio to Manila for 6 hours and a 20 hours flight time, that didn’t stop her from joyfully handing the best gift she could bring from home – a mother’s hug.

The editors of Pacific Standard hope to feature more stories like this about OFW lives. Visit Pacific Standard PH Facebook page to be updated Jem Orcino’s mom and her mom’s adventure in Canada.
