OFW Seeks Help after Sister Refuses to Let Her See Daughter on Her Short Vacation

A lot of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) often have troubles in terms of having close relationships with their children, especially because they live far away from each other for long periods of time. Most OFWs could only go home every 2 years, with just a month to spend with their families before leaving again.

Anne Laña of Sta. Maria, Bulacan recently went to Raffy Tulfo in Action to seek help in getting her 16-year-old daughter back from her sister, even for just a short time as she spends her vacation in the Philippines.

A cleaner in Norway, the 37-year-old mother shared that she gave birth to Desiree in Manila, but her sister offered to bring them home to Capiz. At the time, Anne was having a rocky relationship with the child’s father; thus, she agreed to the arrangement.

Later on, she went away to find a job for her daughter’s future, leaving the 2-year-old child with her sister. She would send support every month, but the distance would separate from her from her daughter, both physically and emotionally.

And though she sent monthly support, the child grew farther away from her – and she would have trouble each time she comes home for a short vacation. Her sister, Leilanie Domingo, would always say she was welcome to take the child, yet would not reply once she arrives in the Philippines.

What’s really sad is that Desiree refuses to go with her to Manila for a short vacation and bonding time. Many netizens believe the child was being brainwashed by her aunt; yet Anne could not force her now 16-year-old daughter to go with her.

Thanks to Raffy Tulfo, she was able to spend a day with her daughter. The bittersweet moment was shared in this video:
