One mother’s lesson on unconditional love has lit up the internet, forcing (happy) tears on unsuspecting viewers across the world.
“This is how easy it is to love your child unconditionally,” a Twitter user wrote along with a video of Tamra Moon and her son, Jesse, getting their hair dyed blue.
“The first thing I said to you was, ‘Hey! I know you!’,” she says at the beginning of the video as the camera shows her working on their hair.
“I carried you for 9 months. I labored with you for 22 hours,” she says. “And so, yeah, I thought I knew you.”
As the video continues, the caring mother lists ways that they surprised her throughout their young life, showing her more and more of themselves.
And when the ending hits, there’s not a dry eye on the internet.
“Thank you for trusting me enough to tell me who you are,” she says.

I saw this last night and I cried like a baby and then I read the comments & cried again.
One of the comments was to the effect that "I knew you before you were born, I imagined what you would be like but that pales in comparison to watching to see who you become."

My oldest recently went for a "boy" hair cut and as we were leaving asked me to call her Noah now. All it took was an 'okay', asking pronouns, and gender identity. She's still figuring it out. I'll be here as she does. Boy, girl, or none of the above. (Yes, this vid made me bawl)

I'm not a mom but I respect you & you're valid. I'm sorry your bio parents can't see how awesome you are.
