KNOXVILLE, TN (WBIR) -- A 3-year-old Knoxville girl refused to turn 4 until she saw her dad, who is currently deployed in Kuwait.

Isabella Franco's 4th birthday party was held this past Saturday, November 30th, in East Knoxville.

There were balloons, rollerskating, presents, and cake. The party had everything a little girl could wish for, except one thing - her dad.
