This Soldier Is Glad That His Flight Was Delayed, Just In Time For Him To See The Most Important Video Of His Life

No matter what a soldier has to experience during the service, being away for his or her family is probably one of the hardest things. They have to miss out on so many family occasions, even something as special as witnessing the birth of their child.

Brooks Lindsey, a military man from Mississippi, nearly missed the chance to see the first few minutes of his newborn’s life. Since soldiers are allowed to travel back home for their child’s birth only if the labor is complicated, Brooks thought that he wouldn’t be able to be by his wife’s side. However, the call from his wife Haley’s doctor changed everything. “I received a call from my doctor that my pressures were too high, and the baby was being stressed and I was preeclamptic” she said. The doctor told her to be in a hospital in an hour because the labor must be induced. This landed Brooks the permission to go back home. But things didn’t go as well as expected. He could only book a flight for the next morning. “I was sure that we would already have a baby by then!” said Haley.

Even though he couldn’t make it in time to see the birth of his daughter, his flight was delayed, allowing him to see everything through his phone. “My Doctor told my mother-in-law to pull the phone out and show him what was going on, ” Brooks wife said. Despite the fact that the soldier had to board a plane, airport personnel allowed him to watch till it was over, after they heard Haley’s doctor shouting “Don’t let him board the flight! She’s here! She’s here!”.

Brooks finally arrived to meet his daughter and had the chance to spend 4 days with his family.Scroll below to see this amazing happy family.(h/t: lovewhatmatters.com)
