As is tradition, the Barack and Michelle Obama had their portraits painted after Barack's exit from office. Their portraits were hung in the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. Michelle's portrait was done by Baltimore artist Amy Sherald. It's a huge painting that shows Michelle in a full length gown, seated and staring out at the viewer.

Soon after the portraits went on public view, a man named Ben Hines went to see them. He ended up standing in line behind a little girl, who was completely absorbed by the image of the First Lady up on the wall:

Her picture went viral, because of the expression of awe on her face, and the inspirational story it tells about representation. A black girl could not have seen a black woman represented amongst the former presidential families until the Obamas, and it's pretty moving to see how it's effecting her. Basically, everyone was crying happy tears:

Buzzfeed eventually found the little girl in the picture. She's two years old, and her name is Parker Curry. Her mother, Jessica, confirmed that Parker was having an incredible moments for real not just in the photo.

"I was trying to get her to turn around so I could take a picture, but she wouldn't cooperate. She just wanted to stare at it. She was fascinated," she said. Jessica added that Parker though Michelle was a "queen."

Then on Tuesday, Michelle Obama shared a picture of herself hanging out with Parker.

There's even a video of them dancing together:

People are crying all over again:

These are the emotions we need right now!
