It's been 10 years since Jeffrey Mayi had seen his mom, and four since he'd seen his brother, Axel. Jeffrey lives in Massachusetts, Axel lives in South Florida, and mom lives in West Africa. Needless to say, this family is spread out, and it's not easy to get together.
Axel wanted to come visit Jeffrey, but the real surprise was that he was able to get a travel visa for his mother to come, too. Jeffrey and his mother have kept in touch via video chat off and on over the years, but the hardship of obtaining a visa made it impossible to visit. Until now.
Here’s what Jeffrey’s wife (who filmed the entire thing) had to say about the surprise:
“Jeffrey’s brother surprised him today by flying in from Florida to meet Christian and I. Jeff’s mom came all the way from Libreville, Gabon. Jeff hasn’t seen his mom in 10 years his reaction is priceless. I love my man and his huge heart. Love my new family too.”
You're not going to be able to hold back tears when you see Jeffrey's reaction — this is (finally) one big happy family.
