Hugs and Tears
Airman surprises her daughter with return from deployment
Seven-year-old Brianna Aebischer was so focused on her teacher, LaNita Keeton, reading “The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything,” the second grader didn’t notice the U.S. Air Force airman sneaking up behind her.
After having her pink stuffed animal “Penelope” held in front her face, Brianna turned around and instantly broke down into tears, hugging her mother, Kristen, who had just returned from a four-and-a-half-month assignment in Saudi Arabia.
“It was a good surprise,” a still choked up Brianna said. “I missed my mommy over that time, and I was waiting for her to come back.”
