Update Thursday, Jan. 16: 
We originally posted Abrams was a student at Creekland Middle School in Lawrenceville, Ga. She is a student at Creekland Middle School in Canton. Regardless of where they live, we are glad Capt. Abrams returned home safely. Here is the story on Canton-Sixes Patch.

Original Post Tuesday, Jan. 14:
After spending a year away defending our nation, Army Capt. Robert Abrams returned home to his family.

Abrams surprised his daughter Lexi. He walked into her 6th grade class at Creekland Elementary School in Canton, Ga.. as she was reading a poem about the military.

He then stopped by his son Preston's school to surprise the 7 year old as well.

11Alive captured the reunions on video.

--Welcome Abrams home. Post your notes of thanks in our comment section below.

HI, I am the mother of the children from this post, I wanted to let you know that we are not from Lawrenceville, we are from Canton, Ga. And my son's name is Preston. I just wanted to make sure you were aware of that. :)

My apologies! I will correct the story. But where ever you may live, we are all glad to have your husband back home safely.
