Jose Queiroz proposed to his wife Rosemary Gonzalez to emigrate from Venezuela shortly before the pandemic.

Rosemary Gonzalez canned tuna, cookies, diapers, hydration solution, some clothes and the children’s favorite toys.

Even though the bags were packed, her son Samuel’s backpack had room to put his lawyer’s ring and the seal used to certify legal documents in his home country of Venezuela.

Samuel is 4 years old. As the youngest of her six children, Rosemary would carry the boy’s backpack on trips to America.

Having settled in Bogotá just before the pandemic, with her husband José and children, Rosemary kept the ring and signet in a cupboard to start anew, this time as a kitchen assistant.
