A Cuban mother was reunited with her son in the United States after 24 years of separation, resulting in a touching scene filled with tears, hugs, and overwhelming emotions. Shared through the event site Only in Dade, the reunion video captured the mix of pain and joy experienced by the family.

Welcomed by her family in the U.S., the woman ended up in a never-ending embrace with her son after 193,536 hours without being able to kiss or hug him. "Mother reunites with her son and family after 24 years apart! What an incredible moment!" the platform noted on its social media.

Kneeling before his mother, both son and mother burst into tears and then embraced tightly. "Oh, my son!" the mother was heard saying, her voice choked with emotion.
