Cute Kid Surprised by Soldier Dad

"This is a video of my son seeing his daddy for the first time after his deployment. My husband is in the National Guard and was deployed to Iraq for 8 months. It was supposed to be for 400 days, but President Obama called for all soldiers out of Iraq before Dec 31, 2011. This video was shot on Dec 12, 2011. My son, Luke, had no idea we were surprising him that day. He has high-functioning autism, so his display of emotion meant that much more. I don't know how he could've handled being surprised by his dad in front of a school or classroom full of people. It made it so much sweeter to me to just see him and his daddy. (You can hear me getting choked up on the tape too!)" -Nikki
