Recientemente fui contactada por una mujer llamada Jamie. Jamie nació en El Salvador, pero debido a la guerra civil y circunstancias desconocidas, Jamie fue adoptada cuando era una bebé, y ha vivido su vida en los Estados Unidos. Ahora, igual que muchas personas adoptadas, Jamie, con la ayuda de la organización Pro-Búsqueda, está buscando a su familia salvadoreña, pero esto es difícil en muchos aspectos. Parte de su historia y las historias de los demás se les dice en el documental emotivo, “Niños de la Memoria”, que les animo a ver.

El documental me hizo llorar, recordar que todos estos años después, la guerra en El Salvador sigue afectando a tantas vidas. Hay personas que viven con agujeros en sus corazones, en busca de la verdad de lo que pasó a ellos y sus familias. Esperemos que aquellos en el poder en El Salvador hacen todo lo que pueden para ayudar a proporcionar la información que tengan para poder ayudar en la búsqueda.

Puedes ver el documental completo en línea en World Channel y leer más sobre el documental en Niñ


Recently I was contacted by a woman named Jamie. Jamie was born in El Salvador, but due to the civil war and unknown circumstances, Jamie was adopted as an infant, and has lived her life in the United States. Now, like many adoptees, Jamie, with the help of the organization Pro-Busqueda, is looking for her Salvadoran family, but this is difficult in many respects. Part of her story and the stories of others are told in the emotional documentary, “Niños de la Memoria” (Children of Memory), which I encourage you to see.

The documentary made ​​me cry, remembering that all these years later, the war in El Salvador continues to affect so many lives. People are living with holes in their hearts, looking for the truth of what happened to them and their families. Hopefully those in power in El Salvador do everything they can to help provide the information they have that can help in the search.

You can watch the full documentary online at World Channel and read more about the documentary at Niñ


  1. As an adoptive mom, these are always hard for me to watch, but I generally love them in the end. I’ll have to take a look at this one soon!
