But for this dad, meeting his newborn son was especially moving, since he wasn’t able to be there when he was born.

For Lt. Michael Lemmons, that day would be special. Michael works in the Navy, and while he was deployed, he received an important message.
His wife had given birth to the couple’s first child -— but since Lt. Michael was out to sea, he couldn’t be there when he was born. Instead, that day would come a few weeks later.
Meeting his son for the first time
Michael’s wife and baby were there when he returned to shore. As soon as he landed, he ran to his wife and gave her a big loving hug.

At last, Dad was home and the family could finally start their new life together.

So beautifully said by Michael. Share if you also think that family is the most important part of life!
