What an incredible homecoming gift this child gave his dad! When Staff Sgt.Jeremy Cooney left for Afghanistan his 6 year old son Micheal had already been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, and was told by doctors he would never be able to walk. While his father was away Micheal defied the odds and learned to walk! This video is footage of Micheal greeting his dad home with the touching surprise of walking to his dad for the first time ever. Jeremy’s loving reaction when he swoops his son up, and hugs him no doubt will bring many watching to tears.
The video below gives a little more background of how Micheal started walking, and how his dad felt seeing his boy walk for the first time. This is very inspiring and touching!
