Lauren, a 10-year-old dancer, had a dance recital coming up. All she really wanted was to spend more time with her busy father. Her dream was for her dad, Michael, to perform with her. Michael was not a dancer, nor had he ever performed on stage, but he also wanted to be able to spend more time with his daughter, so he would do anything to make her wish come true.

So he and his daughter trained for weeks and kept this a complete secret from Mom. On the night of the recital, Mom found herself next to an empty chair because Michael never showed up. Little did she know that they had a secret.

But watch the video below and see her reaction when the big secret was revealed! What a beautiful and heartwarming video.
