Amazing Moment as 88-year-old father reunites with his son with Down syndrome
A video where a son with Down Syndrome is reunited with his father is now going viral! They have been week apart, but in this video it looks like the son haven’t seen his father in years!
The son Matt Cobrink, 53, for the first time in 25 years was away from his father for an entire week!
He flew to New York to meet his favorite baseball player Aron Judge of the New York Yankees.
Matt’s sister, Marcy, was expecting an emotional response, knowing the facts. So she took out the camera and recorded this emotional reunion.
In the video, the son Matt is rushing down the escalator with one goal: to hug and kiss his father. He almost fell down fulfilling that goal!
It is clear that they are both incredibly happy to see each other, after being apart for a week, which hasn’t happened in 25 years.
The video has gone viral over Facebook with the caption: “Homecoming doesn’t get better than this. I think my brother missed my father after 5 days in NYC with my sister.”
Everyone said that this video (including me) brought them to tears. It’s so powerful and emotional!
Marcy says: “I expect that kind of reaction from him. Sometimes I won’t see him for a few days, and then I’ll go to his house or my dad will bring him over here, and he will kiss me like 20 times. He’s just really very loving and happy to see everybody!”
“It gives them hope for their children or they have a cousin who has Down Syndrome. And that it’s so nice to see something that’s happy instead of things that are negative.”
