Jeremiah is blown away to hear her voice, overcome with emotions.

His cousin says he will give Jeremiah grandma’s number so they can reconnect at a less emotional time. It is a chock full of emotions but all of them good. He has a sense of belonging and it radiates in the cousin’s photo they proceed to take. It is now time for Jeremiah and Carmela to head back to PA but Jeremiah is stunned to see Amish people passing by.

He sees a little Amish boy on a horse and buggy go by him and wave and flashes back to being a lost little kid. Jeremiah can relate and this only heightens the mood of the day. He is ready to tell his PA family about everything that’s transpired.
