Watching this baby see her mother for the first time will make you bawl.
Born with a rare condition that caused a blinding build-up of fluid in her eyes, Nicolly Pereira had never seen her mother’s face. Treatment at home in rural Brazil wouldn’t suffice, so Nicolly’s mother, Daiana, posted her story on Facebook. Within days, thousands had shared it and donations came pouring in. They raised $17,000, and soon Nicole was on her way to the U.S. for surgery. Three hours after the surgery started, Nicolly reuinited with her mother. The moment Nicolly saw her mother for the first time is nothing short of amazing. Daiana could not have possibly been happier, “The only word that can be used to describe the feeling is God. My daughter is now free.”
Doctors will continue to monitor her eyes, but with the help of some highly awesome pink glasses, Nicolly will get to know her newly colorful world.
Watch Nicolly see her mother for the first time in her life. Cry. Repeat.
