Ethan meets his son for the first time
Stephanie is waiting anxiously with the kids for the arrival of her husband, Ethan. He is finally returning home from Iraq, for good. It's been almost a year since they have seen him. This will be his first time meeting his son, Aiden.
They are seated in a small private waiting area.
An hour has passed, and baby Jessica is getting a little restless.
All of a sudden, the door opens, and there he is!
Stephanie is soooo happy to see her husband!
Kathleen finally gets her turn. Jessica is a little taken aback, at first. She doesn't really recognize this man.
But somehow she softens up, and allows her daddy to give her a big ol' hug.
When Ethan sees his son for the first time, he is nearly brought to tears. "He's so beautiful!"
Ethan loves his country, but he is happy to be home with his family.
