Ruffa ‘di na takot makidnap mga anak sa Istanbul
PINAYAGAN na ni Ruffa Gutierrez na makausap ng mga anak niyang sina Lorin at Venice ang ama nila na si Yilmas Bektas pagkatapos ng maraming taon na lumipas.
Naniniwala si Ruffa na wala na ang sakit at trauma na nararamdaman ng mga anak after what happened years ago
Lumayo ang loob ng magkapatid sa kanilang ama dahil sa nangyari sa kanilang ina noon.
Ngayong pinapayagan na ni Ruffa na makipag-communicate ang dalawa niyang girls sa ama nakakasiguro siyang unti-unting mawawala ang hinanakit nila kay Yilmaz
“The result was an incident that’s both touching and hopeful,” ayon kay Momshie Ruffa.
“I’ve always known that the girls feel hurt. That can’t be avoided, even though I never talked ill of their father in front of them. I was there when Venice and Yilmaz talked for the very first time. Hagulgol si Venice. I realized that the pain is still there, so I’m hoping that one day, they will be reunited,” paglalahad ni Ruffa sa isang interbyu.
Dagdag pa ng former beauty queen, “It happened during the Holy week. The sister of Yilmaz sent me a message to say Yilmaz had dreamt of Venice the night before and that he was asking if he could talk with her. I told Venice and she got quite upset, but she still asked to give him her number. She said, ‘Mommy, I’m already 17 and I think it’s about time that we have a direct comunication,'”
“What was touching was that Venice’s personality had always been hard and strong, but when her father said, ‘Hi Venice! How are you?’ She broke down. That’s when I really saw the pain. I think that the more they are able to communicate with their dad, the faster the pain will disappear. Venice said, ‘Where have you been all this time? How come you haven’t seen us? You kept making promises but you never lived up to them. When are we going to see you?’ Yilmaz answered, ‘I have my reasons I can’t see you there. I’ve been telling your mom to let you go to Istanbul.’”
Esplika ni Ruffa noon daw ay talagang hindi niya pinapayagan pumunta ng Istanbul sina Lorin at Venice dahil nag-aalala siyang hindi safe ang mga anak dahil mga bata pa ito
“We couldn’t agree on where he could meet the kids. Before, I was really scared that they’d get kidnapped in Istanbul or whatever, but now that they’re adults—Lorin is turning 19 soon and Venice, 18—maybe it’s already OK, especially if they can go with someone older than them. I will have to talk with the kids. After all, he’s still their dad.”
Sinabi ni Ruffa na si Venice lang ang nakausap ni Yilmaz.
“Lorin still didn’t want to talk with him. She said, ‘Does he even know I’m already in college? Mommy, he should pay you because you’re working so hard for us.’ She’ll talk with him when she’s ready. As for me, I’m just grateful that I have work. It’s not easy to be a single working mom. I’m just happy because I was given the opportunity to take care of my kids on my own,” ang very proud na sabi ni Ruffa.
