Army Man Reunites With His 2-Year-Old Daughter After 7 Months In Deployment, And The Toddler's Reaction Is Absolutely Sobby
This two-and-a-half-year-old girl was standing at the airport with the sweetest sign ever: “I’m here to get my dad just don’t know cause I can’t read yet!”
She came to the Rapid City Regional Airport with her mom but didn’t quite understand why.
Her mother Alison prepared a surprise for the little one.
Little Adalynn hadn't seen her dad for 7 months and he was about to walk out of the gateway!
Senior Airman Ron Durbin was away in a military mission for a long time, he couldn't wait for the moment when he could finally hold his little daughter and wife again.
When he approached the girl, it took her only a few moments to realize what was happening.
When she finally recognized her daddy, she rushed to his arms! That father-daughter reunion was the most amazing thing!
Alison could not hold her tears as she watched them hugging each other tightly.
Moments like that make us realize how much military men sacrifice. They spend time in deployment without a chance to be with their families and see the kids grow, missing little milestones, as their first words and their first steps.
Ron Durbin is allowed to spend less than a year with his family before his next deployment. Hopefully, he will cherish every moment of it!
