3-year-old unwraps father in box for birthday present

3-Year-Old Unwraps Father in Box for Birthday Present

A 3-year-old little girl named Bridgette was overjoyed to open a birthday present that was bigger than she was ... and of course the best surprise was yet to come.

She had no idea that her father, who had been deployed in Afghanistan, was inside.



Her face truly was priceless, and she eventually jumped into daddy's arms.

The video was first published in September, but just recently began to spread around the web.

Carr's wife, Chloe, took notice of that, writing on Facebook: 'Just noticed this video has been viewed and shared 215,000 times! I don't know what the definition of viral is, but this seems close.'



Judging from Joshua Carr's Facebook photos, daddy and daughter have spent the most of their time together. Climbing ladders, riding bikes, and plenty of hugs.

If this story doesn't just perk you right up, we don't know what will.

All happy reunions are good.
Seeing videos of children being surprised by their daddies on here might not be important or even a first for many grumps on here but its the most important thing for each and every child who has been separated from their father a long time.
If you don't like it, why keep clicking on the stories?

As we all know there is no greater Love then the Love of a Father for his child and the Love of a child for their Father. It is so sad that so many female co-parents try to come between the Father and child for unearned income and manic control. God bless them.

I for one will never get tired of seeing these young men and women return home after putting their lives on the line for us. God Bless each and everyone of them and their families. and Thanks to each one of them.

Daddys and their little girls always have a sweet relationship.
The boys get the same amount of love just in a different way.

Well, talk about a VERY sweet moment! I don't blame her for her reaction (I know if I hadn't seen someone for a long time, ONLY to be seeing her again, I'd feel a bit emotional, say a LOVELY hello to him or her, and chat with this person to see what's been happening.
