Thanks to technology, keeping in touch with distant loved ones is now easier than ever. Grandma Tutu may have known this, too; as she lived hundreds of miles away from her son and granddaughter, she had become accustomed to talking to her family via a video app. On one occasion, however, what may have initially seemed like a perfectly normal chat through the screen became so much more.
The doting grandmother had spent the past 14 months building up a relationship with her son’s daughter through the video-calling app Tango. You see, Grandma Tutu’s son and his partner live in Los Angeles, making the trip to Oregon not one that can be done in a hurry. Yet it is apparently important for the couple that their little girl nurtures a strong bond with her grandma – even with the distance between them.
