This Christmas all this little boy asked Santa for was to see his father, and of course Santa delivered, a week early too!
His aunt Jadin Hart from Pittsburgh shared the heartwarming video on her Twitter page saying, “My nephew got to unwrap the only Christmas gift he asked for a few days early and his reaction broke my heart.”
Well she is not the only one, we are melting with how emotional this reunion is.

Not surprisingly the video has been viewed 14 million times, and the tear jerker moments continued as people started to share their own similar stories.

I work away on a rescue vessel, and it's the hardest thing leaving my wife and 4 year old boy behind each time. I'm lucky as I'm going home today, i couldn't imagine being away for as long as these guys! Lovely video, that's his Christmas made!

When my dad came home from the Falklands, complete with a huge comedy moustache, which totally freaked my little brother out, I thought we were never going to be able to stop hugging him.
Life is about moments like this.

Felt the same my dad served 23.5 years In the RAF and when he came back from every tour including the gulf and Falklands it was the best gift I could ever ask for #MerryChrsitmas to all our serving armed forces personnel ðŸŽ„ðŸŽ„

When I was 5 my Dad came home to the UK from where he was based Germany to see me in my Nativity. He hid behind the tree and at the end came out I clung to him like a Koala. He'd driven for hours to see me & he had his dinner with us & drove all the way back. Best Christmas ever

When my son came home from Afghanistan he knocked on our door like he was a stranger. To open the door & see him just took my breath away. I thank everyone of them for their service and wish they could all be home
