It is only because she cares!
A mom used her social media powers to have the Peruvian government launch a full scale investigation into her son's whereabouts.
She used her mother powers after her 25-year-old son Garrett Hand and his 25-year-old girlfriend Jamie Neal went on vacation in Peru. When the mother didn't hear from her son - she freaked out.
But Peru realized the mother was worrying for no reason. The government released a statement that said:
"These two young people have fallen in love with Peru. They have visited off-the-beaten-path places and it seems like they're having a blast — so much so that they have forgotten to communicate with their families."
But this was NOT good enough for the mom who wrote on Facebook:
"Let me reiterate, until we have PROOF OF LIFE, we cannot celebrate these rumors and sightings. Proof of life is my son's voice on the phone and a picture of him holding the missing poster."
The government finally found the couple and brought them to an army base where they took the picture (above).
That was good enough for mommy who wrote:
"I am so happy today that my son is well. Now our family will have to process all of this, and I think this will take some time. I can't wait to see Garrett and Jamie walking off the plane and into my arms."
Can't knock a mother for worrying.
That's literally their job, ha!
