“When my husband left on his deployment, our 6-year-old son could not walk on his own. He has cerebral palsy. Doctors originally said that he would never walk or do much of anything. While daddy was away, he learned to walk. For his homecoming, we set it up for Michael to walk to his daddy for the first time ever!

 Now the two day old video has already amassed over 650,000 hits, and is featured on YouTubeTrends, FoxNation, Neatorama, and DailyMail
