The bond between a mother and a child is unbreakable and there is nothing as strong and as beautiful as it is. The following story will definitely make you believe more in this if you are still skeptical. It is about Ada Keating, 98-year-old woman who wanted to take care of her eldest son Tom who is 80 years old. He is staying in a care home in Liverpool.
Ada used to work as an auxiliary nurse and she had four children with her late husband Harry. The youngest from her four children died at the age of 13. Because of that, Tom decided not to get married and he stayed with his mother in Wavertree in Liverpool instead. Tom used to work as a painter and decorator for a building company.
However, after he retired Tom’s condition was deteriorating which is why he was sent in a care home. Even though his mother is 18 years older, she did not even think about moving in with her son to take care of him in the care home.
She accompanied him and she has been taking care of him ever since. The bond between this mother and her son is so strong that they can never separate no matter how old they are.
“I say goodnight to Tom in his room every night and I’ll go and say good morning to him. I’ll tell him I’m coming down for breakfast. When I go out to the hairdressers he’ll look for me to see when I’m coming back. When I get back he’ll come to me with his arms outstretched and give me a big hug.” – Ada said.
Tom is happy because things are going well. The manager of the care home, Phillip Daniels said:
“It’s very touching to see the close relationship both Tom and Ada share and we are so pleased we were able to accommodate both of their needs. It’s very rare to see mothers and their children together in the same care home and we certainly want to make their time together as special as possible.” the manager of care home Phillip Daniels.
They are regularly visited by their family. Ada’s granddaughter reassured us that both are being taken care of all the time, and they never separate.
We hope this story has touched even the most reserved people. You should always know that there is nothing a mother would not do for her child no matter how old she is. This story is definitely worth appreciating and the mother deserves all the praise.
