When Lt. Col. Cotina Jenkins-Sellers returned from Kuwait after being deployed for eight months, the surprise reunion with her 13-year-old son Derrick was absolutely priceless.

It was an ordinary day for the young athlete, who stepped up to the free-throw line just as he had done countless times before. Little did he know, his mother, with help from KSAT-TV, had tiptoed up to stand behind him. She then offered encouragement when he missed the shot. The boy spun around in disbelief, and the look on his face -- as they say -- is worth a thousand words.
