Son Surprises Birth Mom On Her Birthday and There Isn’t a Dry Eye In the House

This is the sweetest.

Even in the best of circumstances, adoption can be challenging (to say the least), including for the birth mother who made a very difficult choice in hopes of giving her child a better shot at life. But sometimes, that birth mother can find a way to be a part of their new life, and when it works out, it’s a really beautiful thing.

For an example, we have to gush over this TikTok video of a grown up adoptee surprising his birth mother at a restaurant. Regardless of what might have happened in the past, these two seem to have a great relationship now that he's an adult — so good that she burst into tears because she was so happy to see him unexpectedly show up.


Seeing them share that long hug was too sweet, and she truly did look so surprised when she saw him standing there. We can only imagine what it must have been like to watch that reunion go down in person!

In the comments, the adoptee shared that while he did meet her for the first time after he turned 18, it had been 10 years since they'd seen each other. After a decade apart, being together again must have been all the more special.
