Military Mom and Daughter Reunite

Little Girl's Letter to Obama Brings Her Military Mom Home

When most kids blow out their birthday candles, they ask for extra toys. All Riley Higa wished for was to see her mother, Melissa Higa, who has been deployed in South Korea for the past nine months. Riley, however, didn't want to leave their reunion up to chance. To assure her mother would be home, Riley wrote to President Barack Obama and asked him to let her mom come home for one day. We don't know if the letter ever made it to the White House, but the Higa ladies were able to reunite for Riley's special day.

To find out how Riley's mom made it home, read the full story at The Stir.
