Surprises can be fun! Especially when they are joyful, happy, and fun. This video captures a surprise — specifically a surprise reunion — that you will never forget.

Taken completely and utterly by surprise, this lovely birth mother meets her daughter for the very first time after placing her for adoption 34 years earlier. Beloved family members and friends are gathered with cameras in hand to capture this most perfect surprise reunion.

As all birth mothers know, the love never dims, never fades. And so being able to embrace her daughter in her arms once again is the realization of a long-ago dream.
