John Forth’s documentary has once again found its place in our hearts. The video was released on YouTube in 2014 and has been viewed over 700,000 times.
John Foreth is a National Guard sergeant deployed to the Middle East. The sergeant returned home to join his family on temporary leave. Before John came home, a pregnant woman was preparing for the birth of their daughter. John didn’t get a chance to attend his daughter’s birth because he was denied leave at the time.
A father-of-two watched the live video and was allowed to surprise his wife, son, and newborn baby.
After the birth of his child, John took the 10 p.m. flight to the United States. John drove straight to the hospital to meet his day-old daughter.
He warmly embraces his wife. Fifteen minutes later, her two-year-old son was hospitalized and met his father for the first time since the outbreak. It was one of the most precious encounters between a son and a father.
