Fort Carson soldier Cody Barraclough returns home from Kuwait, meets newborn daughter

FORT CARSON, Colo. - A soldier at Fort Carson had an extra special homecoming recently -- waiting for him was a daughter he hadn't meet yet.

Cody Barraclough was deployed to Kuwait after finding out his wife was pregnant.

Maggie Barraclough gave birth while Cody was overseas for nine months.

After weeks of watching little Olivia Jane grow via photos, Cody finally returned home with his unit and got to hold his daughter for the first time.

"I'm at a loss for words," Cody told KRDO-TV.  "She's not leaving my arms for awhile."

See the happy reunion on KRDO-TV's website.
