Boy With Cerebral Palsy Walks To Dad

Bust out those tissues — you’ve got to see this emotional video of a boy with cerebral palsy welome home his hero father. This marine got the surprise of a lifetime when he found out his son had learned to walk!

After you get your kick out of this little cutie, you must check this video out next! When Staff Sgt. Jeremy Cooney came home from Afghanistan, his six-year-old son, Michael, walked to him for the first time!

The marine had thought his son’s disability would mean he would need walking assistance his entire life.

“We kept the fact that he could walk a secret the whole time his dad was gone,” said the marine’s wife, Melissa Cooney, to the Welcome Home Blog.

What a happy surprise! We don’t know what choked us up more — when we see the happy father hugging his little boy tightly or when we hear “Your children are so very proud of you” over the loudspeaker.

Isn’t this story amazing, HollyMoms? YOU’ve got to check out the video below.
