10 Of The Sweetest Reunions That Prove “Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder.”

We hate to be apart from our loved ones, but sometimes life takes us in different directions.

The best part about going away is coming back home again! If you can surprise your loved ones with your return, it’s even more fun. Reunion videos are popular online because everyone enjoys a good surprise, and it’s just too sweet to see how some people completely lose it the second they see a long-lost loved one!

3. These little cousins absolutely adore each other, and it shows.
