WATCH: Military dad waits for just the right moment to surprise his son


Grab your tissues to witness the joy at this homecoming

People with Down syndrome are notorious for their joy, and the son in this video is no exception. As he waits to welcome his father home, little does he know his dad is standing right behind him. The joy the two of them express at being reunited again demonstrates the power of love between a father and child. (And if the first reunion isn’t enough, the father then surprises his young daughter, too.)

The father of a righteous man has great joy; he who has a wise son delights in him. — Proverbs 23:24
