Mom Surprises Son With Picking Up Military Dad
Rachel Sebastian 1/18/2017
With war comes a massive sacrifice. Military families especially know that sacrifice of having a deployed family member. Missed birthdays, football games, and an empty seat at the dinner table are just a fraction of what some families go through when a loved one is deployed.
Aronka's family is familiar with missing an important family member, as her husband is in the military. Aronka knows how much her husband is missed, but knows it's something that the family can get through together.
In November, Aronka waited for her son to get home from school. She had exciting news to tell him, so she waited until he was home for the day. While she was waiting, she put out decorations on the kitchen table. Aronka was preparing the house for her deployed husband's arrival.
As her son came home from school, Aronka revealed the exciting news - they were going to pick up his deployed father. He is instantly shocked at the sudden news, and rightfully so.
The video captures the teen's excitement as he discovers that his Dad is returning home. He is in utter disbelief, and asks his mom if she is certain that they're able to get him.
"We're getting him right now?"
But, Aronka has something else planned for her son that will leave him very emotional. Aronka's son runs out of the kitchen and to the stairs, not knowing what would immediately transpire. As he turns the corner to climb the stairs, his day completely changes.
Watch the video to see what surprise Aronka was plotting, but don't forget to grab a box of tissues before you do.
This story is a true testament to the power of family bonds, as nothing is stronger than the love we have for those closest to us. Aronka's surprise will render you speechless, while it leaves her son in tears.
