Despite assurances from the Justice Department that Juan Miguel Gonzales would be reunited with his son in a matter of days he spent his first weekend on U-S soil looking pensive and lonely.


A strange new world has arrived at his temporary doorstep some bringing gifts, others bringing demands.

It was those he apparently didnt want to see slipping out of the house moments before the two fisherman who pulled Elian out of the ocean arrived in the latest effort to change a fathers mind.

SOT/ DONATO DALRYMPLE

I want to say here until I at least can see that man and look into his face in a humble way, If I have to get on my knees I will get on my knees for this man because I want to get on my knees for Elian. I love this boy.
NARR:
Juan Gonzales responded through his lawyer he will meet with the fisherman to simply to say thank you, but he will not meet with Elians Miami relatives until they do one thing:

SOT/GREGORY CRAIG, LAWYER

The first thing that has to happen is that Lazaro has to take by the hand Elian Gonzales and lead him to the father and say, here is your son.
NARR:
There were welcome visitors today. Vicki Martin came all the way from Madison Wisconsin the sister city of Elians home town.

Her mission, a voluntary one, to support Juan Miguel in his quest to recover his son.

SOT/VICKI MARTIN, VISITOR

He seems very sad, hes very sad and quiet.
NARR:
She displayed pictures she was given pictures Juan Miguel wanted the country to see a simple gesture she says aimed to help prove Juan Miguel is a loving father, and that Cuba can still offer a good home.

But she says he has reservations he will return anytime soon.

SOT/VICKI MARTIN, VISITOR

I didnt feel that hes confident that things will be resolved immediately. I think he will not be elated until hes able to embrace his son.
