It’s hard for moms to transition to another stage in life and their relationship with their children as they get old enough to not require constant parenting. One mom who was adjusting to an empty nest got a big surprise from their kids, and it was one that she didn’t know she needed.
“My mom was hitting a point in life where she was realizing her kids have grown up and was needing something that was missing out of her life,” the child who posted the video explained. “I knew she needed a baby, but a special kind of baby.”
That’s when they first considered getting their mom a four-legged friend. “We grew up with a Dalmatian for 15 years,” they explained. “When she passed two years ago my mom was heartbroken. She had not a clue in the world what her surprise was.”
The video shows their mom walking into a room to be surprised with a Dalmatian puppy poking out of a wrapped box. “Are you kidding me?” mom said in shock as she struggled to regain composure. Once she picked up the puppy, the tears were flowing.
“Oh my God, he’s so cute!” she exclaimed as she held the puppy close. The adorable pup can look forward to a great life with a caring owner who was all too grateful for her special gift.
