As healthcare workers continue to be at the forefront in the battle against Covid-19, many have been isolated from their families to avoid transmission of the infection. However, when Suzie Vaughan, a medic from the UK, was finally able to reunite with her daughters after being apart for over nine weeks, a video of the heartwarming reunion left netizens emotional.
Taking to Twitter, the video was shared by Vaughan’s sister Charlotte, with whom the two girls were staying. “Here are the girls being reunited with Mummy after 9 weeks of being away so she could help save lives,” tweeted Charlotte while sharing the clip.
In the 45-second clip, Vaughan can be seen sneaking behind her daughters while they are sitting on the couch, catching them unawares. Moments later, one of the two girl turns around and is ecstatic to see her mother.

It’s lovely to see but does make me think about the psychological effects on younger children of being parted from their parents for so long! It made my teary eyed too! 😢😢😢
