Sarah and Paige have been best friends for eight years.

They originally bonded over the fact that each has had to grow up without an arm. But their friendship is about more than that now -- they tell each other everything. Until recently, though, they'd never met in real life.

That's because Sarah lives in Nappanee, Ind., and Paige lives in Auckland, New Zealand. Their friendship began and blossomed over Skype.

This past summer, Skype asked its users to send in stories of how they've stayed connected with friends and family using the video chat software. But when the company heard about Sarah and Paige's story, it decided to do more than just write about it. Instead, a surprise reunion was planned.

Here's Sarah learning that she will get to meet Paige in person:

If that clip makes you tear up, you won't stand a chance while watching their reunion (top). This time, no computer screen would get in the way of a long-overdue embrace.

And if you're still not over this incredible duo, below is a clip of the girls, sitting arm and arm, after the shock of meeting each other wore off. Ain't friendship grand?
