PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) - Christmas has arrived early for a military family in Phenix City, AL.
When Stephanie Biles asked her son what he wanted for Christmas, 4-year-old Eli's response was immediate.
"Daddy!" Eli said. "I wish he could be with me for Christmas."
His father, Sergeant Robert Biles, is a Calvary Scout in the U.S. Army and had been on tour in Korea for the past 12 months. Robert originally was not scheduled to return home until Dec. 30.
But it's the season for miracles, and Eli's Christmas wish would soon come true.
Three days later, Eli's father surprised him with an early homecoming, just in time for Christmas.
"So it will be extra special for us to spend his very first Christmas with Daddy home," Stephanie said. "Our family is so grateful for this Christmas miracle."
