When it comes to the relationships that are formed via a mother’s love, there are occasions when a difference isn’t really a difference at all.

Just ask Emmelina Austin and her new best friend Kiki, who happens to be a mother gorilla.

The other day, Austin and her family made the decision to take their newborn child, Canyon, to the Franklin Park Zoo in Boston. Canyon is one month old.

While the Austin family was walking by the gorilla cage, they happened to see Kiki interacting with her own child, a young gorilla named Pablo who was 7 months old at the time.

“Now that she is a mother, she feels like she can grasp their link and see how much she cares for Pablo,” Canyon’s father, Michael Austin, told The Dodo. “My wife remarked that now that she is a mother, she feels like she can comprehend their link and see how much she cares for Pablo.”

“Kiki, who was on the other side of the fence, asked my wife to bring out our child so she could show it to her… Suddenly, Kiki reached out and grabbed Pablo, and she brought him over to us by carrying him on her leg.

For the next few minutes, Emmelina and Kiki sat with their babies only inches away from each other, connecting as mothers despite the fact that they did not share a common language:

Michael shed some light on the situation by saying, “[Kiki] was talking to us with her hands.” At one point, Pablo put his face up to the glass, and the two of them stood there with their noses touching while they watched him. Both my eyes and those of my wife began to fill up with tears.
