One three-year old girl had a single Christmas wish at the back of her mind. She needed her daddy who is a soldier by profession to come home over that period. This is why she needed a miracle when she visited Santa at the Bass Pro Shop within St. Charles. And granted was her wish in a miraculous manner.
Josh Pohlman who is an army sergeant had spent the past 9 months in Afghanistan and upon learning the wish of her daughter, he knew he had to come back home over that festive season. He made a plan with his wife to arrange for an emotional surprise homecoming. The dad instantly appeared when the young girl sat on the lap of Santa and made her wish.
She was shocked by the turn of events and the dad moved forward and hugged his daughter.
This reunion took place in time for the Christmas time. To the family’s joy, Pohlman had completed his tour and could spend more time with the family past the holidays.
