Homecoming stories make for the most heartwarming tales, especially when young children are involved. This one is no different. It’s well planned out, timed perfectly, and the reaction is priceless.
Here we have Cameron Yancey, a father and member of the Air Force who came home to surprise his son. Yancey had been in the Middle East for seven months prior to this video catching him standing in front of his doorway waiting for it to open.
Yancey hears the doorknob turn. He crouches down too meet the young boy on the other side.
It’s his 5-year-old son, and he couldn’t have been more surprised.

As soon as he realizes what’s happening, the young boy makes a beeline for his father’s arms.
“Daddy!” he screams, then back into the house. “Mommy, Daddy! My daddy’s home!”
Mom lets Cade have some uninterrupted quaility time with his dad before stepping in to welcome him home. Yancey gives him a mighty hug and holds on as if for dear life, spinning around as Cade cries out, “I missed you, I missed you, daddy, I missed you!”
Cameron later posted the video on Facebook. Not long after, it was already viral.
