HEPHZIBAH, Ga. -- A soldier father delivered a big surprise to his daughter at her east Georgia elementary school this week.
Christina Schubert is in second grade at Jamestown Elementary School in Hephzibah. She only wanted one thing for Christmas (and her birthday, which is also in December) -- for her father to come home.
Sgt. Donald Schubert made that wish come true by showing up at the school during an assembly and surprising Christina in front of all her friends.
The school presented the happy father and daughter with a card and a cake.
