U.S. Marine Jacob Drake spent nine months away at boot camp training, which also meant he had been away from his mom, Lori, for that long. The two of them have a very close relationship, so the distance was very hard on them both.
When Drake finally returned home, he knew he wanted to surprise his mom. He decided to show up unannounced at a medical facility in Cedar Park, Texas, where Lori works as a medical assistant.
Drake sat in the exam room, waiting for his mother to come in. When she opened the door, she thought she was seeing a patient. But she was shocked and pleasantly surprised to find out that the patient was her son.
“Hi mom!” he said, as she walked in the room.
“Oh my God!” she exclaimed as she gave her son a big hug and immediately started crying. Although she was expecting to see a patient, seeing her son was so much better.
She couldn’t believe that her son was actually there with her and couldn’t stop hugging him or sobbing.
Drake has since earned two promotions to become a Lance Corporal, but in the meantime, he will enjoy the time he’s able to spend with his mom before he has to head back to duty.
