Soldier shares exciting reunion with son after giving him the surprise he’s been asking for

An Army Specialist, stationed at Fort Bragg, was not able to return home to Fayetteville, NC until after the holidays, but was still able to give his son the gift he’s long waited for.

Knowing dad wouldn’t be home for Christmas, Daniel still wanted his dad to be mailed home, so mom went searching for the perfect box as soon as dad told her he was heading home. Daniel’s mom said that after looking all over for the perfect box and wrapping it, she hid the box at friend’s house. Then she left Daniel at his best friend’s house while she picked dad up from the airport to get him into position for this emotional reveal.


This is the moment dad was welcomed home by his gorgeous baby girl at the airport after he returned from deployment. She walked towards him and started hugging him and holding on to him. She didn’t want to let him go!
