(CNN) – Talk about falling for each other. This is an airport reunion between two besties separated for almost a year.

The kids, Dawson and Hannah, used to be called Da Da and Shui Shui back at their orphanage in China. Hannah was abandoned apparently because of her cleft lip. Dawson had fluid on the brain.

Then, the Sykes family from Texas adopted Hannah, leaving Dawson behind.

Hannah’s Mom, Sharon Sykes, said, “I was like ‘oh my goodness,’ how can we leave this boy in China. Like really, I couldn’t stop thinking of him.”

So, Sykes posted Dawson’s picture on Facebook seeking a “forever home.” Another Texas couple, the Clarys, saw it and adopted Dawson.

11 months after Hannah arrived at Dallas Fort Worth airport, the best friends reunited and went viral. Once again, they’re sharing a cup of water, rolling around on the floor, and learning English. The two are already a hit on morning TV.

The families live just a few minutes apart and both attend the same Baptist church.
