·1 min read

Susana Foreman moved from the U.S. to Australia just before the COVID-19 pandemic hit and put a stop to most international travel. Her family back in Missouri planned to come to visit her but never had the opportunity due to lockdowns in Melbourne, where Susana was living.

Watch the video above to see the moment Susana’s family turned the tables on her with an epic surprise.

After two years of not seeing her family, Susana wanted to come home for the holidays but didn’t think it would be possible. When she was unexpectedly granted permission to travel, she hatched a plan to surprise her family. She only told one of her sisters.

Little did Susana know, her sister had something a little different in mind. She told their entire family to show up at Missouri’s Springfield-Branson National Airport to greet Susana the minute she walked off the plane. The emotional reunion that followed was one for the record books!
