Adorable Experiment Shows How Even Blindfolded Kids Always Know Their Mom.

Moms and their children have such a special connection, and that sweet bond was highlighted beautifully in this Pandora experiment.

In 2015, a group of six children was tasked with the challenge of picking out their mom from a lineup of women, all while blindfolded. As difficult as that may sound, these intuitive 3- to 9-year-olds seemed to know exactly how to find their mom. In fact, every single one of them was able to confidently guess correctly!

A clip of the experiment went viral, leaving moms (and anyone else who watched) emotional as they saw these adorable children methodically search for their parents. Meanwhile, the moms in waiting couldn’t help but tear up as they watched their precious children looking for them — and it only got better once they were found!

Watch the emotional clip below, and don’t forget to share this heartwarming experiment.
