A video has gone viral on the internet in which a mother is seen reuniting with her US Army National Guard Sergeant son, who paid her a surprise visit at her work-place.
The bond shared between a mother and her child is one that isn't easily broken. This explains why Joquina Williams who had not seen her son, US Army National Guard Sgt. Christopher Williams, in almost a year since his deployment to Afghanistan, was so ecstatic when she finally did.
Christopher, 24, showed up at his mother's work-place to pay her a surprise visit and her reaction was priceless. In the video, which has since gone viral, she is seen hugging and plastering his face with kisses amidst tears continuously saying, "My baby is home."
Christopher had been on a seven-month deployment to Afghanistan, according to the Georgia National Guard. He had been in the military since the age of 18.
Joquina Williams expected her son to arrive home only in November.
"He told me had been planning it and a lot of people knew except me. He’s been gone for a while so just seeing him, it was just like it was yesterday," she told Good Morning America.
