OFWs or Overseas Filipino Workers are considered as our modern-day heroes. The sacrifices they make just to provide for their family is truly commendable.
Part of being an OFW is being strong. They risk their lives in another country to give their families a better life. Not only that, they have to be away from their loved ones in order to do so, and that requires a lot of strength.
Homesickness is basically synonymous to OFW.
Just like in this scenario, where an OFW gets creative in surprising the parents he missed so much.
Michael Francisco, an OFW, poses as a balikbayan box courier just to surprise his parents.
On a video posted on Facebook, Michael is seen unloading some boxes, while pretending to be a courier. He was wearing a face mask, so at first, his mother did not recognize him.
There’s also a part in the video where Michael showed his arm with a tattoo of his mother’s face, but still she didn’t notice.
That’s when Michael took off his mask and said hi to his mother.
Michael’s mother let out a scream and immediately hugged him. This touching reunion made others cry as well.
In addition to this, Michael’s father also cried at the sight of his son, who he hasn’t seen in years.
