In this passage, the words “suffering” and “spared” come to play because of how one can imagine if Lourdes had never resorted to immigration for her family’s survival. Lourdes wished for the better in the income of her family, so she eventually resorted to immigration which caused the nostalgia of a missing parent for her son, Enrique.
