12-year old boy wishes to be reunited with his mother again, which he hasn't seen for years.

CAINTA, Rizal -- On June 8, a concerned citizen posted two photos of a 12-year old boy in Facebook that instantly went viral upon posting.

The uploader, Dianne Paraiso, recalled the incident of how they met the boy in front of Ministop, Vista Verde in Cainta, Rizal. According to Paraiso, it was not their first encounter with the boy named Vincent.

“Unang gabi, nilapitan niya ako. Humingi siya ng pera at sinabing hindi pa siya kumakain. Unang kita pa lang, naisip ko na kagad na tulad lang siya ng ibang batang nanghihingi sa kalye.”

When Paraiso along with her cousins decided to take Vincent to eat, that’s when the boy unraveled his touching story. Who would’ve known that this kid, at such an early age, is already shouldering more problems than he could bear?

The oldest of four siblings, Vincent helps his father in providing for their poverty-stricken family. Due to a lack of money, he’s the only one among them who goes to school. For two years now, they have been living under a thatched house in Cainta.

Aside from financial problems, Vincent is also facing the struggles caused by broken family.His mother left them a few years ago and is now currently living in Davao. Furthermore, the post stated:

“Napansin ng mga pinsan ko na nakapaa lang siya. They asked him kung bakit wala siyang tsinelas, ang sagot niya, "Meron po akong tsinelas sa bahay, pero ginagamit ko lang po pang aral." Vincent is already in his third grade, and he claims that he wants to be a soldier someday.

Despite all of his struggles, the 12-year old kid seemed to find strength by praying. As a matter of fact, when Paraiso asked him if he prays, he promptly answered: "Nagsimba po ako kanina. Dalawang beses po. Tinapos ko pa po pareho." Paraiso asked what he was praying for, and she received a heartbreaking answer.

"Na makita ko na po si Mama."

Paraiso used her Facebook to bring Vincent’s story to others and also to reach out to his mother identified as Avis Macandog. The post has already reached more than 54k likes and 65k shares from the netizens who were offering their prayers and support for Vincent.
