Woman Finds Son After 27 Years On Facebook

May 30, 2009

UK (ChattahBox) – A mother and son have been reunited after the woman’s sister found the man decades later through Facebook.

Gavin Paros was taken by his father to Hungary when he was just three-years-old, and attempts by his mother to get him back were met with nothing but severed ends. The effects of the Communist regime, added to the fact that she had no idea where in Hungary her son had gone, made it impossible for Avril Grube to get her son back.

But 27-years later he was found, married with three children of his own. After a few emails between the two, Gavin flew to Great Britain to see his mother, who he had hardly known before his father (now dead) had kidnapped him.

“I was so overcome and just said ‘my beautiful son’ over and over again,” Mrs. Grube recalled.

“He was very quiet and overwhelmed. We just hugged each other. It is the happiest day of my life, there are almost no words to describe it.”

Gavin does not speak English, and Avril speaks no Hungarian, but the two have been hoping to connect nevertheless, as well as to make up for too much lost time.
