If you could see me write this story, you would find me with tears in my eyes — and that’s after reading the video description one more time. Watching the video is even tougher.

That’s because you’re about to watch a 6-year-old with palsy walk to his dad — a returning U.S. soldier — for the first time. I’ll let the boy’s mother explain (via the Welcome Home blog):

When my husband left on his deployment, our 6-year-old son could not walk on his own. He has cerebral palsy. Doctors originally said that he would never walk or do much of anything. While daddy was away, he learned to walk. For his homecoming, we set it up for Michael to walk to his daddy for the first time ever! We kept the fact that he could walk a secret the whole time his dad was gone!

When Fox’s Gretchen Carlson saw the video this morning, she broke down and couldn’t even finish the segment. You’ll see why that’s not an overreaction in a second:

It’s an incredibly happy story that makes stories like this one even more poignant.
