Ventura Guzman-Cardenaz
reunion with birth family after 30 years

Ventura has found his father and three siblings thirty years after they were scattered as a result of his mother's death when Ven was three years old. They will reunite and celebrate in July.

Ventura, remembered by his family as "little Benny," spent his adolescence and young adulthood feeling the painful loss of his true family. He left the abusive environment of his adoptive parents at age seventeen, and married young in an attempt to create the loving family he yearned for. Ven survived many difficult years of unhealthy relationships as well as the death of his best friend, with only his own courage, faith and humor to support him.
At forty, a more stable lifestyle inspired Ven to search for any relatives or documentation of his birth family. Beyond all of his expectations, he discovered that his father, two sisters, and a brother have been searching for him, and will welcome him back to the fold in July.
Ven, I am honored to be sharing in this healing event with you. Your resilience in the difficult times and your gratitude for the blessings are an inspiration to me.

Love forever,Carol
