Returning Soldier Has Heartwarming Reunion With 6-Year Old Daughter on Her Birthday
Six-year old Baylee was celebrating her birthday with her kindergarten class by sharing a poster of her favorite things. Among them were chocolate and her father, Sgt. Adam Page, who has been serving in Afghanistan for as long as Baylee has been alive. Just when Baylee mentioned her beloved dad, her teacher told her to turn around because there was a surprise.
It was Adam, standing on the other side of the room in his military uniform. The soldier had initially been scheduled to come home in a few months but, unbeknownst to Baylee, his homecoming had been moved up.
“How did you make it?,” little Baylee asked her dad as she ran over to hug him.
“My only birthday present I wanted is you,” she tells him.
While Baylee is clearly overwhelmed with emotion — she can’t stop hugging and kissing her dad — she is also impressively composed during the surprise. But the best part about the homecoming is that it’s going to be a long one, since Page has now been stationed near his family’s Utah home.
