Oh, God, she said with a big smile on her face, a moment captured in a video the school shared on social media at the time. She believed that her brother, Ledera Light, who had been deployed for close to a year with the US. Army Reserve, would not be able to be there for a big day, per GMA. Little did she know, he was actually just a few feet away. Listening to the message from her brother.

She is one in a million with a special talent of knowing just how to move forward. At that point, the camera panned away from the graduate to reveal her brother walking up behind her. And the letter goes on and on and on.
So let me do this laddera talked to him about it, school president remarked as the crowd began cheering and clapping. As soon as Ladera turned around to see her brother standing there, the pair gave each other a big hug. Afterwards, it was her brother’s turn to be surprised.

As soon as he knew he could make this trip, liberal reached out to the school to see if there were any tickets left for the television program.
Then the school suggested that he’d make a grand entrance during the ceremony, which not even all the members of his family knew about. They had me show up to the graduation 2 hours early so they could hide me upstairs so my family wouldn’t see me, he said. The night before, I couldn’t even sleep because I was nervous. Describing the initial surprise, Lederal told GMA, Pretty much everything was kind of a blur after the whole crowd started screaming and clapping.

The camera then swings around to catch his sister with her hand over her mouth, covering her obvious shock at seeing her brother at the party. It takes an agonizing 10 seconds before he’s finally close enough to her to wrap her up in a bear hug.
During that time, the young woman has already started crying. While they hug, the sister emits highpitched sobs of joy, which are partially muffled by her brother’s shoulder. When they finally let go of each other after more than 20 seconds of hugging, the girl carefully wipes the tears from her eyes. She just said she ruined her makeup, some one offscreen said with a chuckle. Graduation surprise video was shot in May.
The endless feelings cannot stop there. This Marine did something impressed his mother, too. A soldier who spent the last year deployed in Iraq in Kuwait, flew home to Minnesota and time to surprise his mom at her nursing home graduation. My heart kind of leapt out of my chest, Margaret Pearson, age 50, told ABC News of the surprise. I don’t even know what the word is to describe the emotion.
A million emotions wrapped into one. Margaret Pearson of North Mankato, Minnesota, thought her son, Army Sergeant Dustin Pearson, aged 29, was still in Fort Bliss, Texas, where he returned after a year long deployment. He told me that he had some hearing problems and he had to see a doctor in Texas before he could come home, and he wouldn’t be home until this weekend, she said. I was very disappointed because my entire family was going to be there except him. Margaret Pearson, also the mother of twin daughters, went to nursing school when Dustin Pearson was a baby, she stopped short of getting her RN degree at the time due to being a working mum.
With her son’s encouragement, she went back to nursing school 25 years later. Every time I seemed to have a breakdown or something over school, I’d call him, said Margaret, who worked full time as an LPN while going to school. A year is a long time, especially when you’re going through school like that. Dustin Pearson had the idea to surprise his mum at her graduation Wednesday. He called his dad and Margaret Pearson’s husband Kurt to see if he could take over from him in the honor of pinning Pearson at the ceremony.
He then called Rasmussen College in Mankato last week to arrange the surprise. We had to change up our program a little bit to make it work, said Cheryl Pratt, dean of nursing at Rasmussen College. Moncado Pearson would just get teary eyed talking about her son not being able to be there. And of course, we knew differently. Margaret Pearson said she still hasn’t stopped smiling from the surprise.
Dustin Pearson is home for the foreseeable future, reconnecting with his family and his own young son. My 50th birthday came and went. Christmas came and went. His son’s first birthday came and went. You can’t really make up for those, Margaret Pearson said of the milestones or sun missed while overseas. But we can make the most out of what we have now with family. Every single moment is a life. Navy Seaman Chris Doherty came home from deployment on June 23 to hugs from his children. But he got a bigger surprise when he saw his wife Natasha. She had a baby bump.
Natasha Doherty of Tamakula, California, had hidden her pregnancy from her husband for six months while he was aboard the USS Carl Vinson. I found out about a week after he left. I didn’t believe it, Natasha, 28, told ABC News. I took the pregnancy test again and I was like, Oh, no way. I was excited about it.
And I emailed him and I told him to call me as soon as he gets a chance. But then I thought about it for a few minutes and I was like, you know, this isn’t how I want to tell him in an email. I emailed him back and I said, I just missed your voice. That’s when I decided I’m going to document it with weekly belly pictures for him so he wouldn’t miss it. As Chris was approaching his family and the large crowds welcoming home their sailors in San Diego, natasha still kept her welcome home sign perfectly positioned in front of her stomach so he wouldn’t see my heart was racing, she recalled.
I stood back and let the kids run to him. I hung back for a minute and then he reached into me and gave me a hug and I dropped it. He just stood there in shock. He didn’t know what was going on. Kris was so taken aback by his wife’s growing belly that he didn’t know she was joking or not.
There are a lot of thoughts going through my mind, he said with a laugh. The first was confusion. Then I thought she was joking with me, so I poked it to make sure it was real. When it was real, I was extremely confused, so I asked, Is that real? To be sure, he then hugged her because it was the only thing I could think to do.
Natasha said keeping the surprise was the hardest thing she’s ever had to do, but is glad she stuck it out until he was home. I wanted to share the excitement and joy with him about getting a fourth baby. He definitely wasn’t expecting it, she said. Being pregnant is such a fun experience, and not being able to share it with him was really hard. I was working the whole time and taking care of the kids, so I had to push through everything.
Every time the expecting mom would post photos to Facebook, she’d cleverly disguise her pregnant stomach so Kris couldn’t see it. I would always use the kids to cover my belly, she said. My best friend always does Snapchat, and she would put emojis in front of it just in case to throw them off. Needless to say, the proud papa definitely had no clue and is still in shock at his wife’s ability to not spill the beans. I can’t believe she was able to keep the secret for as long as she did because we tell each other everything, so I know it was really hard for her, he said.
I’m sure every day she wanted to just tell me, but I’m really happy she waited because it was an awesome homecoming surprise and we got to find out the gender together the day after I got home. The happy couple are expecting their new baby girl August 31. I was extremely happy with the news because we both wanted a fourth child, and since it’s our last, I was happy she did something memorable and fun, said Chris, aged 27. It was everything I hoped for. His reaction was the best.
