Amazing video: Deployed dad surprises daughter at graduation

GRAND FORKS, N.D. — For her high school graduation, Taylor Crafton’s family brought along a cardboard cutout of her father Chris.

According to WDAZ, Chris is a member of the Air Force and had been deployed to Cuba months earlier.Screen Shot 2014-05-28 at 1.42.58 PM

But as it tuns out, she didn’t need the cutout after all.

Taylor got the surprise of her life when her father walked out on stage at her graduation ceremony. The entire Crafton family, too, was shocked.

“These are just things you see on YouTube or on TV,” Taylor’s mother Paige told WDAZ.  “You know, it’s nothing that really happens to people you know, so it’s just the best feeling in the world.”

“I’m just so happy he’s here, ” Taylor said. “Better than a car. Better than anything. So yeah, that’s all I wanted for graduation.”
