This Deployed Soldier Watched His Baby’s Birth on an iPad, Then He Did Something Wonderful!


When you're serving your country, halfway around the world, it can be extremely disheartening to know you are missing out on some incredibly big moments back home. 

For Sgt. John Vorrath, he experienced the unfortunate results of being deployed so far away, first hand - missing the birth of his daughter. Luckily, he was able to at least watch the birth via an iPad.

It was during this viewing that Vorrath was slipped a note, letting him know that he had finally been given clearance for his request to leave the Middle East and fly home.

Immediately, Vorrath jumped on a plane flew back to surprise his wife in the hospital and meet his new baby girl! I was in tears watching everyone's reaction! 

To add to my uncontrollable sobs, the couple's 2-year-old son also makes an appearance and jumps into his father's arms!
