Graduation day is more than just receiving a diploma for some; it's a momentous occasion that celebrates all the struggles and hard work to finally "make it."
Even though it's a significant ceremony, there are those who do not have the luxury of being able to enjoy and memorialize it with their family.
Laura is a high school senior who knows what it's like to not have your mom witness you crossing that stage and taking pictures that capture such a major accomplishment.
Her mother was deported back to Mexico a couple years ago, but that didn't stop Laura from making sure her mom could have this memory with her.
Brace yourselves, you might need a whole box of tissues for what's coming next...
She went Mexico — with her cap and gown — to take graduation pics with her mom!
This is too pure for words.
THIS is the face of a proud mami.
We see those medals and lanyards of honor!
And just look at the way these two are hugging each other with so much love.
It's such a frame-worthy photo and better than any photo-op with the dean of the school.
People couldn't get over how inspiring it was and hope that this mother-daughter duo get to see each other regularly.
No matter the distance, Laura was able to prove the she's as strong-willed and determined to succeed just like her mother.
We seriously can't stop ugly crying at how beautiful this is.
There's nothing that compares to a mother-daughter bond.
We reached out to Laura and will keep you updated with any additional information about this sweet moment.
