The holidays often are one of the only times of the year when family members are together in the same place to share as well as to attend parties in a heartwarming time.

However, for families with members deployed in the armed forces, that seems to be more difficult.

Lucky, this particular family had the chance to be reunited with their loved one. Their deployed soldier came home just in time for a family picture!

While the family was gathering for a group photo around the holidays, they lamented that the only that would make the moment better would be their missing serviceman, Nate.

“Looks good, looks good everybody,” the photographer said as she stages the picture. “The only thing that could make this picture better … is if Nate were here.”

It’s unbelievable, as soon as she mentioned his name, Nate walked in from the kitchen.

At this moment, everyone’s faces were full of emotion. And they were all overjoyed, the shrieks, and screams filled the room.

The loved ones rose to their feet and took turns ambushing Nate for hugs while he smiled and soaked in all the love family.

This less than two-minute video captures all the feels and is a perfect depiction of the family love.

Share Nate’s heartwarming homecoming with your family and friends!
