"The phone call was all about how much my mother missed me," Ewan mentioned. 

"It was a special moment with mixed emotions. It was strange but it was special. I call her as often as I can. That's about three to four times a week."

"I would love to see my mother, but at the moment we cannot travel." Ewan also added that at the moment they have financial issues. 

After Janis Stevenson mentioned that she has a very old phone and communication is very difficult. WeBuyCars decided to step in and help.
