On Tamara Williams’ birthday, her sister Wendy invited her out to Pirate’s Dinner Adventure, a pirate-themed restaurant that hosts live shows.
Little did Tamara know, a trip to the pirate-themed restaurant was only half her birthday surprise!
Tamara was enjoying her time with her sister and their friends at the pirate-themed restaurant when she was invited onstage to join the show!
Under the guise of her being chosen because of her birthday, the host told Tamara that they had a gift for her.
A pirate wearing a big floppy hat kneeled directly behind her, holding a box before him.
“The pirate behind you will give you your gift,” the host said to her.
Tamara took the box. Inside, she found a photo and a letter.
They were both from her son, James.
Lance Cpl. James Williams of the United States Marine Corps hadn’t seen his mom in months.
He was stationed in North Carolina — far from the pirate-themed restaurant in Los Angeles that Tamara was at for her birthday.
Or so she thought!
Check out the video below to see the big surprise that awaited Tamara after she opened the box, and please SHARE it on Facebook!
