When a little girl received the sweetest birthday present ever—her father—her prayers were answered.
The video shows the little girl looking forward to seeing her military father and celebrating her birthday with him.
Aubrey initially received a parcel from Daddy Eric on her birthday, with a card stating that it was from him.
On her birthday, her father had prepared a wonderful package for her. Aubrey is really excited to open the enormous package, and she carefully tears open the paper. A modest gift was inside the box, along with a message that read, “Happy birthday, I love you.”
But the little girl is still unsatisfied, and as her mother asks, “What do you want for your birthday?” she looks away. “Daddy,” she says.
As her mother asks her again, “What do you want as a gift?” she turns away from the box and looks crushed. “You want daddy as a gift?” he added.
Then she instructs her to close her eyes and utter her daddy’s name, pleading with Papa Jesus to bring her papa as a birthday gift.
Another woman, who was filming the scene, encourages her to close her eyes and ask to God to send her father.
“Papa Jesus, I want my daddy, and I want him to come here, and I love him,” the small girl prays earnestly to God. He’s the best father I’ve ever known.”
Aubrey’s father is now serving in the Middle East and has recently arrived home in time for her birthday celebrations.
While she is praying, her father approaches her from behind and stands just behind her. When she is prompted to turn around and hug mother, she does so and sees her father.
Aubrey smiles broadly as her father wipes away her tears, and the two of them reunite after a long separation.
In the midst of all the hatred on social media, this is such a nice video to watch. We adore military videos because they beautifully depict people’s feelings.
