If you didn't cry while watching the Switched at Birth Series Finale then you have a heart of stone! We don't think they could have ended the series in any other way. It was truly beautiful.

1. Regina told Kathryn that it had been five years since the switch happened and they first met!

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1002

They really did hate each other back then. *cries* They've come so far!

2. And THEN she told her:

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1003

WHAT? Although we guess her decision made sense. She wanted to give Toby and Lily the guest house, which was really lovely of her, but still...*more cries*

3. Bay told her parents that she was going to be featured in this month's Live Ink magazine!

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1004

AND that there was going to be a big party to celebrate the magazine's 100th year that they were all invited to. Congratulations from us too, Bay! We were so proud of our girl. John, however, was more interested in how much money she was getting for it.

4. Travis told John that he had decided to take up the offer to play baseball in Japan...

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1005

But that he didn't want to tell Bay until after the party. How was she going to react?

5. Mingo finally apologized properly to Iris.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1006

And she accepted his apology! We're so glad they made up.

6. After Iris left, Daphne and Mingo told each other that they and their respective "partners" were good.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1007

We're not going to lie, it was totally awkward and you could just tell that they were still completely in to each other.

7. Toby told Lily that being a DJ was not as fun as it used to be.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1008

He said that he wanted to feel the way Lily does when she interviews students.

8. When Regina told Luca that she was moving out of the guest house, he suggested that they move into a place together.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1009

Regina had a seriously steamy flashback of being with Eric, but still accepted Luca's offer. It was a pretty hesitant acceptance.

9. Bay asked Noelle how long it took her to make a name for herself in the tattoo world.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1010

Noelle told Bay that she made it as soon as she inked a big client and that there was going to be a big client at the party that night! If Bay inked her, she'd be set.

10. Daphne and Mingo found out that they were going to be competing for the same medical internship.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1011

They seemed totally chill about it!

11. Melody told Regina some big news.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1012

Although she said that they hadn't decided on anything yet.

12. And then Emmett told Bay that if Melody moved, he was going to go with her.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1013

His plan made complete sense, but we were totally welling up inside. And outside.

13. Kathryn found out that John had known that Bay wasn't his biological daughter a month before Kathryn did!

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1014

WHAT?

14. Daphne had her interview for the internship, but the doctor who interviewed her was AWFUL.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1015

What was he TALKING about?

15. Bay and Daphne spotted Jordan DeVille at the party.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1016

This was Bay's chance to land a big client and get herself put on the tattoo map!

16. Daphne, Bay and Toby reminisced about all the trouble they'd gotten up to in the past.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1017

Oh the memories.

17. Noelle helped Bay score an appointment with Jordan DeVille!

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1018

She finally admitted how great she thought Bay was! We knew she was just a big softie really.

18. Are you ready for this? Regina broke up with Luca.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1019

That person was Eric! She was still in love with Eric!

19. Daphne asked Kathryn if she thought it was worthwhile her pursuing a career as a doctor.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1020

Kathryn OF COURSE said that it was.

20. A cafe owner got annoyed at Harrison, a person with Down Syndrome, but Toby was able to resolve the situation.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1021

He told the owner that he just needed to be patient with Harrison.

21. Bay told John that she'd just landed her first big client, but John STILL wasn't impressed with her career choice.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1022

This spiraled into an argument about how Travis was kicked off the baseball team, which lead to John telling Bay that he'd got him a chance to play pro in Japan!

22. Bay talked to Travis and he told her that he couldn't turn down the offer, but that he really wanted her to come with him to Japan.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1023

Bay totally understood and said that she would think about it.

23. Toby met Harrison's caretaker, Nina.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1024

He was pleasantly surprised to find out that she also had Down Syndrome.

24. Kathryn confronted John about the DNA test he took without telling her.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1025

John said that it totally threw him when Bay took that blood test -- he thought that Kathryn had cheated on him!

25. Kathryn was really upset, but then it dawned on her that even though John thought Bay was someone else's daughter, he still hadn't left them.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1026

"Bay may not have been my child, but she's my child". Guys, this line got us right in the feels.

26. Natalie told Melody that Matthew had been kicked out of his house so they went looking for him.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1027

Melody really wanted to help him.

27. Toby told Lily about Harrison and Nina.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1028

Meeting them made him realize that he wanted to educate people about Down Syndrome and advocate for children like Carlton. He'd found his tail!

28. After speaking with Emmett, Bay told Travis that he wanted to go with him to Japan!

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1029

It seemed like the perfect way for them to reconnect.

29. Bay also told Travis that she couldn't go with him.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1030

But that didn't mean they had to break up -- it meant that they were stronger than ever.

30. Daphne went back to the doctor who had interviewed her and totally kicked ASS.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1031

She told him that no employer can discriminate against a qualified individual on the basis of disability. We were SO proud of our girl. And you know what else? She could have sued him, but that wasn't her style.

31. Regina went to Eric and told him that he couldn't keep running.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1032

She told Eric that if he turned himself in, he would get some time, but then afterwards, they could have a proper life together! She also said that she would take care of Will while he was gone.

32. Melody asked Gabe if Matthew could move in with them and he said yes!

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1033

It meant that she couldn't move to D.C. anymore, but that didn't matter -- she belonged in her own program.

33. Mingo told Daphne that he had actually broken up with Amy.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1034

And Daphne told him that her and Chris were just friends. They had both just wanted each other to think that they weren't single.

34. Which meant...

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1035

YESSSS!!!!!!!!!!! FINALLY!!!!!!

35. Bay and Emmett shared the most beautiful goodbye ever.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1036

We lost it at this point. Totally lost it.

36. John finally told Bay that he was proud of her.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1037

We knew it.

37. After Regina told everybody that she would be moving out and raising Eric's son until he got out of prison, she shared a really emotional moment with Bay.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1038

Regina told Bay that she was so glad she'd found her.

38. Then Daphne asked Kathryn:

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1039

We didn't think it was possible to feel any more emotions, but there you go.

39. And then this happened:

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1040

Guys, stop it!!!!!!!!!!

40. And that was the beautiful finale of Switched at Birth.

Switched at Birth - The 40 Best Moments From The Switched At Birth Series Finale - 1041

We're not crying, YOU are.
