Medical staff across the world have been hailed as kings and queens as they have taken up duties only brave people could undertake.
Most of them have had to spend weeks away from their families and loved ones so they could cater to the fight against COVID-19.
United Kingdom medic Charlotte Savage is one of the countless heroes and she had to stay away from her kids for nine weeks to avoid passing the disease to them.
The mother of two and her husband made the hard decision to ship off their kids to their aunt’s place when she actively started dealing with infected patients.
The lady who works at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Kings Lynn plotted a heartwarming surprise that would make her reunion with her daughters a memorable moment.
Charlotte who primarily works in operating theatres waited till her daughters Bella and Hettie were settled in the lounge having a chat before she sneaked from behind.
She then waited it out and stayed kneeling till they realized that someone was lurking behind them.
The video was shared on Twitter and her followers were deeply touched by the raw emotions depicted in the clip.
When the two angels looked behind, they saw their mum and quickly jumped on her while screaming.
Charlotte clutched onto her babies tightly and smiled as she filled them with warmth and love.
The medical officer said she and her husband sought out a counselor who spoke to the girls while mummy was away.
She wanted to make sure they were in the right headspace as they endured nine weeks without their mum.
“We took all steps to make sure they were looked after physically and mentally. They are military babies so are used the daddy going away. Their therapist is absolutely wonderful and we could not have done it without her,” Charlotte said.
