Mom Surprised By Son She Has Not Seen Since He Was Three

A loving mother screamed in shock and darted through a family gathering when, out of the corner of her eye, she saw her son, who she had not seen since he was three-years-old. Tracy Faunce, 42, was caught completely by surprise when her son Christopher, 18, came around the corner, running across the yard and into his arms for an emotional reunion and floods of happy tears. The moment took place on October 23, in Winston Salem, North Carolina, where Tracy currently lives, along with her sister, Terry Gibson, 39. Terry Gibson secretly planned the reunion with Christopher, keeping silent about the surprise for two months. Each week Tracy and Terry's family hosts a big dinner in their backyard, and so this provided the perfect opportunity for Christopher to surprise his mom. Terry's husband, John, collected the 18-year-old from a nearby airport, and when they arrived, everyone knew what was coming – except Tracy.
