This is what more than a decade of separation looks like when it comes to an end. Hope Holland met her son Jonathan at the U.S.-Mexico border Wednesday more than 15 years since his father abducted him and fled the country. (Video via KGTV)
"It's a miracle!" Holland told our partners at KGTV. "I never thought this day would ever, ever come, so I'm very very happy. Extremely happy."
In 1999, Holland says Jonathan's father, who had shared custody, took him to Mexico. Holland says she suffered from depression after losing her son and believed she'd never be able to find him. But social media brought her hope.
