A California mother got the surprise of a lifetime when her soldier son returned home from Afghanistan.

Cynthia Guerrero thought she was shopping for an RV, but was instead surprised by her son, Gabriel Guerrero, who had been overseas for six months.

“This is the best gift a mother could ever have is to hold her solider, son and my hero in my arms once again,” she said.
