This heartwarming airport reunion in Canada is brightening everyone's day
The arrival of a refugee family in the Winnipeg Richardson International Airport is warming the hearts of many as a video of their reunion with other family members circulates on Twitter.
The video shows a man and his children coming down an escalator at the airport to be greeted by his emotional family members.
The woman in the video is the mother of one of the new arrivals and she came to Canada as a refugee from Syria three years ago.
These videos are always pure joy. A mother, who came to Canada as a refugee from Syria, sees her son for the first time in three years after his refugee application was approved. The family is now reunited. He goes to kiss her feet, a sign of respect. She sits right down with him pic.twitter.com/Pu5dc4el8H— Melissa Martin (@DoubleEmMartin) November 7, 2019
Melissa Martin, a reporter from The Winnipeg Free Press, posted the video online.
"The family are friends of good friends of mine. They’re lovely, and doing well. The kids are thriving here, and no doubt their brother and his young family will do the same," Martin shared in a tweet.
People on Twitter are loving the video for its wholesomeness.
That is absolutely beautiful. Canada is a better country today from them arriving and being together.— On top of the world, looking over the edge. (@Zimmy86) November 7, 2019
