Estela de Carlotto: ‘I have closed a chapter but there is still a lot to do’

Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo head Estela de Carlotto has said that finding his long-lost grandson, the 114th grandchild recovered by Grandmothers, is a “dream” that “brought Argentines together” but pointed out that “there is still a lot to do”.

“Personally, I have closed a chapter, a personal story, and I feel that Laura, wherever she is, is telling me ‘thank you mom, mission accomplished’ with a smile,” de Carlotto said referring to her daughter Laura, whose son –who she named Guido- was snatched from her only five hours after being born. “But there is still a lot to do for Grandmothers,” she added during an interview with a local newspaper.

“I believe Guido has brought us Argentines together,” Estela said. “Not because of me, but because there is a person who regained his freedom, his rights,” she added. “We have to keep going for the ones left,” the President of Grandmothers stressed.

She also referred to the meeting with her grandson last Thursday. “I did not cry, I just hugged him and said ‘Guido, my dear grandson, I have been looking for you for so long’”.
