A Vietnamese American Twitter user got many netizens mushy after sharing what her mom gave her on her 18th birthday.
Thy Tran recently posted images of her loving mom’s special gift: a scrapbook in which every milestone of her life is recorded.
The book included photos and clippings from all of her firsts, such as first tooth, first baby steps, and even her first job.
Her mom scribbled important details of her life milestones in Vietnamese.
Tran wrote on Twitter back in April: “For my 18th birthday, my mom gave me a book where she’s been documenting every single milestone in my life, from my first tooth to my first job to finally 18 years of living. It took me hours to read it cause it’s all in Viet but it’s safe to say, I cried.”

Aww this is beautiful. It’s great you know Vietnamese. I’d cry too if my mom did something like this. But even if she didn’t, I still love her anyway. 😍
