Military Mom and Dad Surprise Daughter at School Magic Show

Magician Performs the Most Amazing "Trick" For a Young Girl With Deployed Parents

On what seemed like an already special morning due to a magic show at school, Addison Woodburn couldn't have known that her day was going to get even more special when the magician chose her to help with a big trick.

Addison — whose mother and father are both in the military and were both deployed at the time — was carrying around a red, white, and blue "mommy doll," which the magician asked to borrow for his trick. The little girl stood by wearing a mini army jacket in complete awe as the magician made her doll disappear — little did she know that he was about to turn it into something even better.

With the help of two assistants — one of which was a giant teddy bear — the magician makes true magic happen: Addison's mom, Julia, pops out of the box the doll was placed into. After a tearful reunion, the magician steps over to his teddy bear assistant and says he has one more surprise — watch the video to see the magician's sweet surprises for Addison and the emotional events that follow (just grab a tissue or two first).
