Returning Marine Greeted By Disabled Son Who Walks For The First Time [Video]
We’ve seen more than a few really touching videos of soldiers returning home and being greeted by their family, and dogs, but this one is especially touching because the 6-year-old boy suffers from cerebral palsy and the doctors said that he would most likely never walk.
From the Mom who submitted the video to the Welcome Home Blog:
“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!”
Get the Kleenex out and watch this returning soldier getting the best welcome he could ever imagine.
