Dad returns to son in hospital, makes him light up with delight

Born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome and an Intact Atrial Septum, 5-year-old Ethan was admitted to the hospital for an upper respiratory infection. Unfortunately, it happened to be the same time Dad returned home from a 7-month deployment. This was his first time seeing his Dad after 7 months and he was so tired that he didn’t know what was going on. But as soon as Ethan realizes that it wasn’t a dream he radiated happiness.


A couple years later and their happiness is still radiating!
