A mother and her son are finally reunited after hardships separated them for over 10 years.
Jeffrey Mayi and his wife Shannon Slattery were brand new parents. After having a son, Christian, the couple was over the moon. The only element missing from their big happy family? Jeffrey’s mother and younger brother.
Jeffrey and his family were from Libreville, Gabon, a country on the west coast of Africa. As a young man, he had managed to leave the sovereign state. As for his brother, Axel, and the pair’s mother? The government had confiscated their passports. It had been ten years since Jeffrey had seen his family.
One day, the couple received word Jeffrey’s little brother, Axel, would soon be paying a visit. Jeffery was thrilled his younger sibling would finally meet his wife and brand new baby. But that wouldn’t be all.
After 10 years of separation, Axel wanted the moment he reunited with his brother to be as special as possible. The young man decided not to reveal the fact the boys’ mother would also be accompanying him to America. A day before their scheduled arrival, Axel invites only his sister-in-law to be in on the secret.
The moment the brothers reconnect is heartfelt and full of emotion. Laughing and smiling, the boys act as if no time had passed at all. Jeffrey had no idea what was in store for him.
Jeffrey’s mother waits in a spare bedroom while the anticipation builds. Finally, she surprises her son after 10 long years apart. They share a long embrace before Jeffrey is moved to tears and drops to his knees.
Watch below as her beloved son hugs her for the first time in 10 years.
