SANDY, Utah — A Sandy woman had no idea the early Christmas present she was about to open would be her own son.

Maria Roestenbug’s family told her that her son, Jacob Roestenburg, would be home from his mission in Bulgaria a week later than he actually arrived.

Watch the video above for her emotional reaction.

The video was filmed by Jocelyn DeHart, @jocelyndehart, with DeHart Films.
