First few weeks in Costa Rica
It has been a week since Sharon arrived in Costa Rica, and we have already made great progress for the production of Imaginary Mothers. We posted flyers throughout San Jose and neighboring Alajuela looking for Latina mothers who have lost children to adoption. As we were posting one flyer, a woman approached us and shared a moving story about her neighbor who lost her baby to adoption. This neighbor ended up falling into depression and dying without ever having the chance to find her lost child. Nuria, the woman who shared with us this tragic story, is very interested in women’s issues and has connected us with women organizations in Costa Rica, which are doing great things to empower Ticas.
