This reunion between a kid with Down Syndrome and his dad will make you cry
While we do our daily chores there are a bunch of men fighting hard for our safety. Our armed forces leave their families and the comfort of their homes to protect and save us. The sacrifice of the emotions and their time can never be repaid. They protect our freedom and pay a price by giving up on precious moments with their families.
Internet is filled with videos of reunion of offshore Army guys returning to the arms of their loved ones and wagging tails. We swear we love them all but this one may be the most emotional one around.
Aimaan Grieten has been fighting ISIS offshore for past few months. This made him go away from his son who has Down Syndrome and who terribly missed him. Explaining ISIS and their work is a difficult to any child let alone be a special needs one.
So, when Aimaan returned, he decided to surprise his son at his school. He stood behind completely dressed in uniform and asked his son permission to sit next to him. That kid took a moment to understand the reality and when he says ‘Dad’ in a surprised tone laced with so much love and longing. This moment will surely warm your heart. They hug and the reunion is so beautiful. We are sure that everyone who saw that moment in reality had a tear in their eyes.
Later, he introduced his Dad to everyone in the class. The euphoria of the moment was so palpable. People later queued up to get a picture with Aimaan and his son.
