Military Dad Surprises Son Who Thinks He's Meeting Newborn Sister

An eight-year-old boy was while waiting to meet his newborn sister only to be surprised by his military dad who he hadn’t seen for nine months. Matthew Herrera had not seen his father, Julian Sanchez, while he had been deployed in Camp Arifjan, Kuwait, with the United States Army. As soon as Julian, a specialist, got the news he could come home, he started working on the surprise with Matthew's mom Amanda and stepmom Chelsey, Julian's wife. Three days prior to the surprise, Matthew's sister Thea had been born, and so Amanda and Chelsey told Matthew he would soon get to meet her. As Matthew came out of Amanda's house, and walked down the stairs, excited to meet his new sister he had no idea his dad had snuck around the side of the house and was waiting to surprise him. When Matthew takes a few more steps Julian then jumps out leaving his son in total shock before the pair emotionally reunite with a big hug.
