‘Maybe I for­got you had grown up, but I just needed to pick you up’

Global Times - - MOSAIC -

An 84-year-old woman who suf­fers from Alzheimer’s dis­ease con­fused peo­ple at a kinder­garten when she came to pick up her daugh­ter who had left the school 30 years ago.

“My mom has had de­men­tia for years and has for­got­ten a lot of things, but she still re­mem­bers she needs to pick me up which was over 30 years ago,” the woman’s daugh­ter sur­named Bai was in tears when she ar­rived at the kinder­garten to pick up her mother, Zi­jin­shan Video re­ported.

Walk­ing with the help of a cane, the woman took a bus to the Af­fil­i­ated Kinder­garten of Nan­jing Univer­sity of Science and Tech­nol­ogy. She could only tell the se­cu­rity guard that she had come to pick up her daugh­ter, who was sur­named Bai.

The se­cu­rity guard couldn’t find the daugh­ter’s name in the school’s list of stu­dents and called po­lice who con­tacted the woman’s daugh­ter.

“Why are you here, mom?” the daugh­ter asked. “I came to pick you up,” the mother smiled at her daugh­ter.

Many net users were moved by the touch­ing story. “Mother’s love is in­stinc­tual,” one net user com­mented. “Par­ents are the peo­ple who care about you the most in the world,” an­other wrote.
