I hope this is just the first of thousands of these that we get to see in the coming months. Of the many casualties of the Covid-19 Global Pandemic, our emotional well-being due to family estrangement is, to me, a very underrated one.
I know that when I finally saw my folks after more than a year at Christmas, I was so overcome that I fell into my dad’s arms like a small child.
I can only imagine what this moment must have been like for Hollywood icon, Michael Douglas. His son Cameron (and his partner, Vivian Thibes) welcomed a new son, “Ryder” into the world more than a month ago.
Due to Covid restrictions and precautions, Grandpa Michael had been unable to see his new grandson. That just changed.
Love this pic and this caption: Congratulations Cameron and Viviane! Welcome to the world Ryder T. Douglas,’ adding a heart emoji and the hashtag #ProudGrandpa.
I have a feeling that, like videos and pictures of soldiers returning home to family, these sorts of reunions are going to leave me a weeping mess every time.
