Argentina: Welcome, grandchild #110

It's about six months since the last post of this nature I wrote, and I'm happy to do it again.

The Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo have announced the recovery of identity of another grandchild - the 110th. She is the daughter of Oscar Rómulo Gutiérrez and Liliana Isabel Acuña, who were disappeared on 26 August 1976, while Liliana was five months pregnant. Their families were told by an agent from the police that Liliana gave birth in December 1976 or January 1977. The parents remain disappeared.

The woman went to the Grandmothers last autumn with doubts about her parentage and subsequently underwent a DNA test.

Her grandmother, Vilma Delinda Sesarego de Gutiérrez, was one of the founders of the Abuelas group, but sadly did not live to see her own grandchild found. Nor did her other grandmother, Rosa González. But she does now have two uncles to connect her to her birth family.
