She Hasn’t Seen Her Deployed Dad in 7 Months. Then She Hears His Name Over the Speaker…

7-year-old Hayley McGregor got the surprise of a lifetime when her dad showed up to her cheerleading routine at a high school football game.

And this wasn’t just any old surprise.

What made his appearance so special is that her father had been away in Afghanistan for the last 7 months as an officer in the U.S. Navy, and little miss Hayley missed him like CrAzY. After a stunning routine with her junior squad, the adorable cheerleader strikes a finishing pose—but as she hears her father’s name announced over the speaker, a much different emotion hits her face. And it’s, well, you just have to see for yourself…
