92-Year-Old Hugs Great-Granddaughter For First Time

This is the emotional moment a great-grandmother finally gets to hug her great-granddaughter for the first time - the only member of the family she had never held. Chris O’Brien and his four-year-old daughter Andi live in Okotoks in Alberta, Canada, thousands of miles from Chris’ grandmother Kathleen, aged 92, in Sackville, New Brunswick. Although the pair talk on the phone every Sunday, Kathleen would always let Chris and Andi know she was the only grandchild that she never met or held. Sadly, Andi’s great-grandfather passed away shortly after she was born, and the fact she never got to meet him had bothered Chris ever since. But Chris’ girlfriend Robyn made sure they weren’t apart any longer, with a pair of tickets to go and meet Kathleen for the first time and give her the hugged she dreamed of. After 8hrs of flights and another hour by car, an excited Andi gently knocks on her great-grandmother’s door holding a gift of flowers. As Kathleen opens the door, she elatedly pulls Andi into her arms and says “there’s my little girl” while Andi beams with joy.
