Alzheimer's is very difficult to cope with— both for the person suffering and those who love them. But a woman named Christine Stone, whose mother Setsuko Harmon started showing signs of Alzheimer's over a decade ago, discovered an unexpected silver lining to the disease.
After Stone discovered that she was pregnant, she was excited to share the happy news with her mother. But because Harmon's memory doesn't retain things for very long, she got to "surprise" her mother with the happy news over and over again.
Harmon's reaction is adorably delightful every single time.
"I’ve shared the news countless times ― too many to count," Stone told The Huffington Post. "It is sad yet heartwarming to see my mom’s reaction every time."
