This is What Not Seeing Your Mom in 10 Years Will Do To You

Get the tissues ready.

(Video: Shannon Slattery YouTube)

A Massachusetts resident that goes by the name Jeffrey got the surprise of his life recently when he got an unexpected visit from his mother Madeline, whom he hadn’t seen in 10 years.

At first, Jeffrey sees his brother, who he hadn’t seen in about four years, then is literally floored when he sees his mom who was hiding behind a wall. The reaction is not only priceless, it’s emotional and will leave you either in tears or wanting to drop everything and call your mom.

Madeline, who was stuck in Libreville, Gabon because of visa and financial reasons was finally able to visit not only her son, but her new grandson, who was born earlier this year.

Some say that absence makes the heart grow fonder and this case was no exception. Jeffrey’s reaction is one of happiness and appreciation for the people he loves most.
