Mother, long-lost son finally meet more than 30 years later

CNN reports on an interesting story, which is a heartwarming way to begin the holiday season.  A Wisconsin mother and her long-lost son met Saturday for the first time since her estranged husband spirited him away to Mexico more than 30 years ago. It was an emotional reunion, with the mother only speaking English and her 37-year-old son only Spanish. David Amaya Barrick's father took him across the border at about age 2 from Chicago.  His mother, Kathy Amaya, now 60, appeared before him in the airport. "They embraced, hugged and kissed -- the first time they've laid eyes on each other in about 35 years."
