A mother’s emotional Christmas gift went viral on TikTok. Get ready to tear up.

LeAnne Partlow lost her mom to a tragic accident when she was 6 years old. Now a mother herself, Partlow wished that her late mom would be able to meet her daughter.

During Christmas 2020, Partlow received a special gift that made her wish come true at least a little bit.

In the footage, she unwrapped a massive Christmas present and could hardly stop crying to fully open up the touching gift. 

“Today, I got the most beautiful gift, a painting of us all together,” Partlow said. “[It’s like] a snapshot frozen in time. So, of course, I ugly cried. I hope you all hold your loved ones close tonight and remember what’s truly important — love.”
