WATCH: Touching moment between graduate, her father at the border


A graduating high school student meets her dad halfway all so she could share a special moment with him while donning her cap and gown. 

In a video posted to Facebook, Sarai Ruiz, who just graduated from Early College High School, meets her father, Esteban Ruiz, in the middle of the Laredo International Bridge. 

Dressed in her cap and gown, Sarai embraces her dad as the two share a moment together. 

“I knew my father would never see me walk to get my diploma but today I’d thought I’d surprise him by crossing the bridge so he could see me with my cap and gown,” she wrote in the post. 

Ruiz will attend the University of Texas at Austin this fall.
