EDWARDSBURG, Mich. An Edwardsburg 5th grader received a huge surprise Friday at school.

Her father surprised her after spending the past seven months in Afghanistan.

Staff Sgt. Ryan Barnes was able to shock his daughter Hannah during lunch.

Hannah had no idea her dad was getting ready to go home.

She had already made and was getting ready to send him a card for Valentine's day.

This is his second tour of duty during the 10-year-old’s life.

Ryan hopes to be home for good.

He even wants to take Hannah on vacation and maybe grant her wish of seeing dolphins.
