After spending two months apart due to the Covid-19 lockdown, adorable best friends finally reunite.
Madison Rosboschil and best friend and cousin James, played together almost every day. However, since the lockdown started, the pair’s friendly gatherings sadly turned into Facetime phone calls.
When the restrictions were lifted, Madison’s mother, Kathleen, immediately drove to James’ grandparents’ house. She then filmed the emotional reunion of the two best friends.
“The last time they were with each other was 67 days ago and they saw each other all the time until we left because we didn’t know what to expect with the lockdown,” Kathleen said.
She shared that the two were born two weeks apart so they were able to experience everything together.
“Throughout the lockdown, Madison has found it tough because she had no one her size to play with. She loves playing chase and her first question was asking if James would chase her when they met up.”
As soon as the lockdown was lifted, Kathleen told her daughter that she now has the chance to see her best friend. The news made her daughter so happy.
“She called James as soon as she woke up, shouting that she was coming to see him. We taught them it was important to keep the masks on, but they could give each other a hug.”
When Madison and her mom stepped out of their car, the two best friends ran straight to each other and cuddled. “It was such a beautiful moment” Kathleen recalled.
“My daughter has been desperate for kids to play with and she just wanted to play chase with James all weekend.”
Erin Blaylock, James’ mother, added: “They were each other’s first friend. Madi is the first person James wants to call when he gets a new toy or something exciting to share.”
The adorable video clip shows the pair, both wearing face masks, rushing towards each other for a long-awaited hug.
Erin said: “We have been thankful for modern technology which has kept us connected during these unprecedented times but there is nothing better than spending time with your best friend.”
