Seven-year-old Hayley McGregor wasn’t expect this heartwarming surprise when performing with the high-school cheerleaders. After a successful halftime routine, the announcer came on the loudspeaker with a message for Hayley that took her a moment to comprehend before she burst into a series of mixed emotions.
She couldn’t believe her ears when the announcer introduced her father, a naval officer in the Navy Reserve who had been serving in Afghanistan. He hadn’t been home for seven months, and she didn’t know who to run to first when she spots her father in the distance. Soon enough, she flung herself into her father’s arms where they both embraced each other.
The naval officer had been nervous all day long, and couldn’t be happier when he reunited with her daughter after so long.
