12-year-old Te’Kia was excited to learn that the secret she helped Air Force Master Sergeant Andrew Mast keep made her mom incredibly happy.
After mom said ‘yes’ when MSgt asked for her hand in marriage the tables had turned and it was Te’Kia’s mom and MSgt Mast who were in on a secret. Te’kia sat in shock as MSgt. Mast kneeled, open a little box with a ring, and asked her if she would be his daughter. Overwhelmed by his gesture, Te’kia double over in laughter before wrapping her arms around him.
