Crying kid’s request to OFW mum: “Sana hindi ka na lang umalis”

Many children in the Philippines left behind by overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) always long for their parent’s return. That is why when OFWs return home, a question that always bugs their children is if their parents will be home for good.

Like many OFWs, Trish opted to leave her 8-year-old son in the Philippines to work abroad in hopes of giving him a better future.

While having her vacation in the country, Trish was selected to become one of the contestants in one of the segments of variety show Wowowin.

During the interview portion of the segment, Trish’s child, Toto, was asked if she has a message for her OFW mother.

“Tatandaan mo Ma, mahal kita. Sana hindi ka na lang umalis kasi mamimiss na naman kita,” the Toto said.

At a young age, however, Toto seems to understand why his mother chose to work abroad.

“Mag-ingat ka kung aalis ka ulit. Huwag mong pababayaan ang sarili mo,” Toto told his mother.

Trish’s mother said that she had previously asked her daughter to stay in the country to be with her son. However, Trish insisted that it would be better for their family for her to work abroad.

“Sana wag ka na lang umalis para maalagaan mo ang anak mo. Sana ang gusto ko dito na lang siya magtrabaho kaso sabi niya doon na lang siya sa ibang bansa,” Trish’s mother said.

“Makakabawi din ako sa’yo, Ma. Pagdating ng panahon,” the OFW told her mother who had been taking care of Toto and his sibling.
