A 7-year-old girl who hadn’t seen her military dad in nearly a year is finally spending some much-needed time with him after a reunion she’ll never forget.
According to WNYT, Lieutenant Colonel Jean-Paul Plamondon was deployed to Kuwait last February. His daughter Natalie has missed a lot of milestones with her dad.
She couldn’t believe her eyes when he surprised her at her Clifton Park, New York, elementary school.
Her mom, Valarie, was the mystery reader at Natalie’s school Tuesday. Alongside her mom, Natalie read her favorite book, “Hero Dad.”
When they finished the story, Natalie’s dad entered the room. Natalie ran into his arms and burst into tears.
“Was it a good surprise?” asked Plamondon.
“Better than anything in the world!” said Natalie.
