(CNN)– A Navy dad stationed in Japan just could not miss the birth of his baby girl… and thanks to technology, timing and a persistent family he didn’t have to.

Using FaceTime, Jesse Mohn was able to see and hear his 8 pound, 10 ounce baby’s first cry. The family is expected to reunite face-to-face in December.
