For more than a year, 7-year-old Jean-Paul had been sending up prayers and finally they were answered. His dad Navy MA1 Jose Nunez was home from deployment, and surprised Jean-Paul and his older brother Andrew at school.
In the video you can hear mom ask Jean-Paul “Papi, do you remember everything we’ve been praying for lately?”
His eyes, lips, and his spirit all at once smiled as he replied, “Daddy”
“Well, guess what? God listened.” Mom said.
God had sent their Sailor home right on time and doubly so for Andrew, who had experienced severe separation anxiety when their dad deployed.
Andrew was stunned with disbelief when he saw Jose standing behind him. But as soon as he realized that was indeed his dad the hugs and tears resumed.
