Mom with Alzheimer’s forgot daughter is all grown up, went to pick her up from kindergarten


This is the heartbreaking moment when a mother who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease do not remember that her daughter has graduated from kindergarten more than three decades ago. 

The 84-year-old woman took a bus and reached the Affiliated Kindergarten of Nanjing University of Science and Technology to pick her little girl.

When she arrived at the kindergarten, she asked the security guard that she came to pick up her daughter surnamed Bai.

The security guard tried to find a girl as described by the woman. However, he could not find any girl with a surname Bai on the record.

The security guard then called for help from police who later contacted the woman’s daughter.

Unlike anything she remembered, her daughter was actually a grown-up woman.

The daughter then came to the police station and asked her mother, “Why are you here, mom?”

“I came to pick you up,” the elderly mother replied to her daughter with a smile on her face.

Apparently, the mother used to pick her daughter up from the kindergarten every day 30 years ago.
