Graduating from high school can be one of the biggest achievements in a young student’s life. Families opt to buy their young graduates cars, computers and other gifts when they finish their time at school. One Fishers, Indiana, woman got the surprise of a lifetime in May 2016 on her graduation day.
She thought her brother would not be home to see her get her diploma, but he had other plans. While she is celebrating her graduation day, her family secretly planned a secret surprise for her special day.
A young man dressed in army fatigues walks out into a backyard with a bouquet of flowers, balloon and a mission. In disbelief, the young woman says, “Oh my god,” as soon as her brother walks toward her. She asks her family around her, “How long have you been planning this,” while wrapped in a big hug with her brother. After hugging his sister, the young man hugs his family members as they all welcome him home from deployment.
The gift means so much to the young girl, she goes back for a second embrace with her brother. Sometimes the best gifts are the ones that bring families together. Even though brothers and sisters fight, these two show that nothing can break the bond of family.
