Heartbreaking moment mom bursts into tears when she sees military son is home for the holidays

A soldier named Austin Pearson returned home from South Korea, and his mother's reaction quickly became a web sensation.

As shown in a Facebook video, Pearson comes back home during the 2017 Christmas season.

The soldier was thankfully able to surprise his mother Teresa Pearson in the nick of time for the special time of year.

For a while, Pearson had been stationed with the U.S. Army in South Korea.

Pearson's application to leave was initially being denied, making 2017 the first year that he would not be with his family for Christmas.

However, an early Christmas present was in store for him and his family back home. The soldier’s wish was granted after reapplying for leave.

His reunion with his sweet mom was captured on video.

What started as a FaceTime talk on October 1, 2017, ended with embraces and tears of joy.

Teresa had just finished the video call with her child before he gave her the most excellent gift ever.

The mother was uninformed that Pearson was behind her. At first, she thought he’s the server delivering her food.

When she realized who's truly there, her stun merits everything. This moment is precious.


Ronin Coffelt was pleased to see his dad, a senior master sergeant in the U.S. Air Force, on his birthday.

The young man, who turned nine years of age, was hoping to see his father Mark, who was on an eight-month deployment in Qatar.

However, when the big day arrived, he got back home to a big present with a note that said his dad wouldn't be able to return home.

In the Facebook video posted on April 19, 2018, Ronin looks distressed after reading the note, which his dad supposedly wrote.

His mom, Aleecia, then asks him to open the big birthday box. At that point, he sees the note that reads, "Surprise."

He looks confused until the point that he looks up and sees his dad in full military uniform. His face lights up as he runs toward him, shouting, "Daddy, daddy, daddy!"

Aleecia made sure to have the emotional moment recorded in a video.
