Thanks to their Amish upbringing, Mary and Abe had never hugged. But Abe wanted to change that.
“Can I give you a hug?” he asked his mother.
She embraced her son and discovered something remarkable. "Abe hugged me for the first time. It makes a person feel really good to hug their kids.”
Abe later described the huge as "weird and awesome at the same time," but did say it was something he would do again. It should be interesting to see if Mary decides to go back to her community -- especially if Abe decides not to.
