Man collapses, overcome with emotion after seeing his mother

The emotional reunion after 10 years will make you tear up

Grab a tissue. It’s official. This video that went viral after more than 48 million views between Facebook and YouTube is one that will go down in history as the ultimate “awwwwwww” moment.

According to DailyMail.com, Jeffrey, a resident of Massachusetts, was reunited with his mother Madeline after 10 years. She’d just flown in from Libreville, Gabon, in Africa to see her grandson, who was born earlier this year.

We haven’t been this emotional over seeing a mother reunited with her son since Celie’s children came from Africa in The Color Purple.

The first face Jeffrey saw was his brother Axel, whom he hadn’t seen in four years. Axel lives in south Florida. His mother later called out to him. He spots her and that’s when the breakdown begins.

Thank you Jeffrey for helping us remember the joy of celebrating moms.
