Derrick Jenkins hasn’t seen his mom in 8 months. But this week, the 13-year-old got a huge surprise that hopefully helped him forget their time apart.
Derrick’s mom is Lt. Col. Cotina Jenkins-Sellers and she has been deployed to Kuwait for the last 8 months, but she has just returned to San Antonio. Derrick plays basketball for the Legacy Middle School. With the help of his coaches, his mom snuck into the gym during a game. While Derrick was shooting a free throw, she walked onto the court to surprise him. And was he ever surprised!
Watch the heartwarming, feel-good homecoming below.
