A family planned a huge surprise for their mother’s 50th birthday, including a dog, flowers, and her dream trip to Disney World.

Joshua, a student at Liberty University, contacted CBS 6 with the video surprise to his mom Beth.

He said his mom has been a single parent to him and his siblings for 18 years after his father suddenly passed away. Joshua said his mother has had to work several jobs over the years and hasn't been able to take a vacation with the family for 10 years.

Beth's kids have been planning her 50th birthday for two years, saving enough money to buy the whole family tickets to Disney.

Joshua said Disney World has been his mom's birthday wish since 2006 and they're happy to finally make her dream come true. He said he wanted to share this story so everyone knows what an incredible mom she has been.
