Watching someone you love slip away slowly is heartbreaking, something the families of people with Alzheimer’s and dementia understand all too well.
Olivia Salza’s father has been steadily declining from Alzheimer’s disease for a while now, but she still sees glimmers of his true nature. When she recently found out that she and her husband Nick are expecting their first baby, she recorded the emotional moment she told her dad.
The couple has been trying to get pregnant for three years, and while Olivia’s dad knows about her struggles to conceive, he isn’t always able to recall the important facts.
In a video, Olivia and Nick ask him a few simple questions to see how lucid he is. Once they’re sure he recognizes them, they tell him the good news. His reaction is so incredibly sweet that the clip quickly went viral!
Their family will no doubt cherish this moment for years to come as every memory is a priceless gift. Watch the heartwarming reveal in the video below, and be sure to share this story with your friends.
