Shannon kept it all a secret from Jeffrey.
The moment Jeffrey saw his brother and mother was caught on camera. He nearly collapsed when he saw Axel, and completely broke down when he saw his mother.
Shannon says the video perfectly captures who Jeffrey is as a person.
"Jeffrey is 6 foot 7 inches tall and works as a carpenter," wrote Shannon. "This video is the epitome of what an upstanding man he is. He’s kind, loving, God-fearing, patient, hardworking, and a loving father and family man. I’m grateful to God that he’s mine and I’m his."
The video has been viewed on Facebook more than 5 million times.
