Girl Reunited With Dad After 10 Months Apart

A little girl anxiously waits at her living room window for the arrival of her dad who she hasn’t seen in 10 months due to COVID restrictions - before charging outside into his arms. Maddie Magee, aged seven, had been separated from father Ruairi, 36, who lives in Dubai for almost a year due to the pandemic. After Ruairi and Maddie’s mom, Pauline McCrory, 36, separated, Maddie remained living in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland with her mom. She last saw her dad over Christmas 2019, and as COVID restrictions took hold earlier this year, Maddie was left devastated when trips to Dubai and Scotland to visit Ruairi canceled. But on October 24, Ruairi was headed home to Northern Ireland, and ahead of his arrival, Maddie was so excited she headed to her window, climbed on the radiator and peered out. As soon as her father’s car pulled in she ran down her driveway straight into her father’s arms. The pair then spent the next eight days together before Ruairi headed back to the Middle East.
