Doble Kara star Julia Montes expressed her sadness in a a photo she uploaded on her Instagram.
With Julia in the photo was her biological dad Martin Schnittka, her stepmom and half-brother, who are going back to Germany after their short visit in the country.
"The saddest part happened earlier today ... ganun pala pakiramdam kahit saglit mo lang sila nakasama parang ayaw mo na sila paalisin kung puede lang, kaya lalo akong naging saludo sa mga pamilya, lalo na pati ang ating mga kapamilya na OFW na umaalis ng bansa kahit mahirap, ginagawa nila para sa pamilya nila.
"Today, it leaves me a very nice lesson ... make time as much as you can with your loved ones and family and make the most of it ... and "no goodbyes just till next time," Julia wrote in her caption.
The actress reunited with her father a few days ago, something she thought would never happen in her lifetime. Her German father left when she was still very young.
Martin was also able to reconnect with her mom Gemma Hautea.
