When was the last time you got a truly wonderful surprise?
When Kaydence’s mother delivered a healthy baby boy a full week early, everyone was excited about his early arrival. Kaydence was thrilled to come visit her mom in the hospital and meet her new baby brother, but the second she laid eyes on the swaddled infant, she burst into tears of sheer joy.
“He’s beautiful, huh?” her mother asks, and the little girl can do nothing but tearfully nod her head in agreement. After a few more seconds of softly weeping into her cupped palms, Kaydence manages to choke out, “He’s so precious!”
With some prodding from Mom, Kaydence reaches over and strokes her sleeping baby brother’s cheek. It’s clear to anyone watching this intimate family moment that Kaydence is going to be a wonderful big sister!
Just as the sensitive sweetheart starts to get herself together, Mom decides to drop another bombshell surprise in her lap.
“There’s somebody else you should meet,” Mom says quietly, and Kaydence snaps her head up and looks eagerly towards the door to the hospital room. Without missing a beat, a tall soldier enters the room. It’s Kaydence’s father, who returned from his tour in Afghanistan four months early to meet his new son!
“Daddy!” Kaydence cries as she leaps into her father’s arms. Then the waterworks start all over, but with good reason. And this time, we’re crying right along with her!
What a heartwarming family reunion! There’s just so much to be joyful about here — a new baby, a reunited family, and one little girl who wears her heart on her sleeve.
