“Welcome Home Daddy! I Can Walk!”

Here are a couple of snippets from a brief story that brightened my day, followed by URL’s the the vid and story.

“A U.S. marine returning home from Afghanistan is greeted by his 6-year-old son at a ceremony inside a school gymnasium. The boy, who had cerebral palsy, was unable to walk when his father, Staff Sgt. Jeremy Cooney, was deployed.”

“While daddy was away, he learned to walk,” Melissa Cooney, the boy’s mother, explained on the WelcomeHomeBlog.com. “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!”
