In case you don’t know, we like the Welcome Home Blog. It celebrates service dads that get another opportunity to hug their families and even surprise loved ones.

This video comes to us via Melissa C. where son Michael is the one who surprises dad by walking for the first time.

“When my husband left on his deployment, our 6-year-old son could not walk on his own. He has cerebral palsy. Doctors originally said that he would never walk or do much of anything. While daddy was away, he learned to walk. For his homecoming, we set it up for Michael to walk to his daddy for the first time ever! We kept the fact that he could walk a secret the whole time his dad was gone!”
