If you've ever studied abroad and lived with host parents, you know it's like having another family far away from home. Laeticia Etetebe first came to New York when she was 16 years old on a foreign exchange program, and after living with a family for six months, she became one of their own. Since then, Etetebe has been living and working internationally, and her American parents Bob and Pam haven't seen her for five years. Their surprise and excitement when she suddenly knocks on their door is so sweet and hilarious!

Sometimes, you have to be apart from your family for a very long time. This man in this next video hadn't seen his parents for 12 years. When he walks in his home and sees his mom and dad sitting on the couch, he's understandably shocked and emotional!
