Edgar Gutierrez was treated to a special birthday surprise by his sisters.
Iowa native Gutierrez was living in Columbia, Missouri while at police academy. When his girlfriend Nikki Sines came to visit, he told her that his only wish for his upcoming 25th birthday was to spend the day with his family.
Unbeknownst to Gutierrez, his sisters Stephanie and Mackenzie hatched a plan to surprise their brother. They made the five-hour car ride from Iowa to Missouri then hid in Gutierrez’ room to surprise him. Stephanie left a cryptic note on his bed alongside a gift card, saying “if you want it bad enough, you’ll get it :)”. The sisters then emerged from hiding to embrace their delighted brother.
