Although watching a little boy walk towards his dad may not seem newsworthy, wait until you hear this story.

When US Marine Staff Sgt. Jeremy Cooney was deployed to Afghanistan last year, he left behind his wife and children, one of whom was born with cerebral palsy and couldn’t walk.

But what Cooney didn’t know is that while he was gone, his 6-year-old son Matthew learned to walk on his own. His family kept Matthew’s incredible progress a secret so that at his homecoming, Cooney got the gift of a lifetime as he watched his son walk towards him for the VERY FIRST TIME. We have goosebumps just thinking about how he must have felt. He told reporters that watching his son walk right into his arms was “probably one of the happiest moments of my life.”

We adore this story of bravery, perseverance, and love. LIKE and REBLOG if you agree!
