First Lieutenant Jake Osborne worried that he wouldn't be there for the birth of his first daughter. Osborne deployed to Afghanistan in October of last year, just weeks after he and his wife became aware of the pregnancy. Osborne hoped he would get the chance to return home for the momentous occasion, but he wasn't too sure the opportunity would arise. His sister had committed to being in the operating room during the birth.
On the 12th of May, Osborne's Commander told him to back his bags as he would be going on leave to meet his new baby girl. Two days later, Osborne found himself waiting for the last leg of his flight home when he got the news about his newest family member, baby Paisley. Below, watch the moment unfold when Jake enters the hospital room for the first time and sees Chelsea holding his new daughter. What a touching moment! What did you think of the video?
