Tyler Thomas has been deployed for the last 285 days. And the moment he arrived home to see his family, his beautiful baby girl couldn’t have been more excited.

The video first starts off with the little girl holding a felt sign up that reads, “8 months later, Daddy’s home!” You can hear her mom then ask her if she’s ready to get her daddy and as she round the corner, she bursts into an adorable squeal.

As she yells “Dad!” you see her jump into his arms and then that’s when Thomas starts breaking people’s hearts. As he holds his daughter in his arms, he can’t help but become overran with emotions.

Someone else shared, “Thank you for your service. I wish you and your family feelings of love and happiness like this video every day! God Bless.” As well as, “That’s so precious!!! Again, thank you for your service to our country! And tell your wife, thanks for being the strong wife that stands behind her soldier and supports this country as well.”
