The heartwarming moment that a military mother surprised her 10-year-old son after having been deployed since October has made people very emotional.
Vaneshyia Augustine, an S4 employee in the US Army, was deployed in Afghanistan and has not been home in Atlanta since Christmas.
For the past nine months, the Augustine family has given the strength to continue its efforts.
& # 39; I have constantly missed my family because we are so close & & # 39 ;, said Augustine GMA.
Vaneshyia Augustine surprised her son, Jamari Davis, during his diving lesson
Maybe no more than her son, Jamari Davis.
Augustine said the two are usually & # 39; connected at the heel & # 39; and being divorced has been difficult.
& # 39; We used to even have Taco Tuesdays together. The hardest part was getting away from him, & Augustine said.
Jamari has been living with his grandmother, Charlene Wilson-Cain, since his summer vacation, and it was his grandmother who helped orchestrate the sweet surprise coming home.

Wilson-Cain discussed the idea with friend Pietra Craig, chairman of the marketing committee and secretary of the Southern SeaQuestrians.
The organization teaches colored people to swim and dive. Jamari has taken classes in Atlanta.
Craig told GMA: & # 39; It all fell in line. & # 39;
The mother-son duo have not seen each other since Christmas, but were able to reunite with the help of Jamari & # 39; s grandmother and SeaQuestrian
The master plan only took four days of coordination to work together.
For Jamari it was just another diving lesson. It would be an emotional reconciliation for everyone.
The boy and the instructor swam underwater in a pool as his mother secretly walked to the edge of the deck.
The two are very close and the deployment of nine months was difficult for both
When they came up, the instructor pointed behind Jamari and the moment the two see each other immediately lights up the room.
& # 39; First, & # 39; said Jamari, & # 39; I didn't know what was going on. & # 39;
With the help of others, they manage to get Jamari out and the two hug each other warmly.
Southern SeaQuestrians president, Kim Yarborough, remembered how moving the moment was.
Augustine now lives on an army base for only three hours and is much closer to her family
She told GMA: & # 39; It was so moving because he was wet and she was crying in her uniform. Nothing prepares you for seeing such a family, I started to tear behind my own mask. & # 39;
People cheer around them.
& # 39; It was a blessing to see her that day, & # 39; said Jamari.
Jamari: & # 39; It was a blessing to see her that day & # 39;
Jamari & # 39; s new love for diving has inspired his family to also try the activity.
The boy taught his godfather to swim and Augustine and his grandparents consider giving it a try.
Augustine said: & # 39; If I can encourage him to do it, I should be able to do it too. & # 39;
Since Augustine now lives on an army base only a three-hour drive away, this achievement will be much easier to do.
