A Marine's homecoming reunited a family and let a father hold his child for the first time.

Three months ago, little Jayden Faith came into this world as her father, Sgt. Chad Mortenson, witnessed the miracle half a world away via a webcam.

It was half a year since his wife Denae last held her husband.

NEWS 9's Stacey Cameron was at the airport when Sergeant Mortenson held his little girl for the first time.  His video is in the featured video section.
