A bittersweet reunion decades in the making couldn't have happened soon enough for one family.

Wanda Rodriguez, a hospice nurse in the Bronx, met new patient Victor Peraza at Calvary Hospital last week.

She was shocked to discover that he was the father she hadn't seen in 41 years.

They'd lost touch after a divorce.

Victor confirmed he had a daughter named Wanda, and she burst into tears.

Now, Wanda and Victor say they will cherish whatever time they have left together.
