Young Girl Found A Secret Room In Her House, Then She Looked Inside And Her Eyes Went Wide

Stumbling upon a tattered, worn treasure map buried inside the window box of an old house - this is a childhood dream come true! Just imagine the overwhelming feelings of curiosity, wonder, and hope that such a memorable experience would evoke within a child.
A six-year-old girl was able to live this very scenario, and her "hunt for treasure" was certainly a journey she'll remember vividly for the rest of her life.
When one father realized that he and his wife would be having a baby, he decided to do something unforgettable for his unborn child. This father buried a treasure within his home - a treasure that would sit quietly for years, just waiting to be discovered.
He explained in his YouTube documentation of his "pirate project,"
"A plan I made 7 years ago, I have waited all this time to unleash it on my daughter."
"She was wanting some pocket money, so she was sent (reluctantly) to clean out the dusty, old window box. Little did she know that she would find a treasure map amongst the old brass. This map leads to a secret room sealed upon her conception, 7 years ago."
This father, determined to create a real-life treasure hunt for his child-on-the-way, placed a "buried treasure" within a hidden room of their family home, and sealed off the wall. He then planted an authentic looking map, for his little girl to one day discover.
While completing her cleaning chore, the little girl unknowingly came across an antique map - with her grandma and mother by her side, and with her father recording the entire heartwarming scene! As the foursome eagerly scamper through the house following the map, and working their way towards the "red X," the little girl makes adorable remarks such as:
"Hidden door... Where's the hidden door? I think I, I think I know where the hidden door is!"
"It's weird it says there's a hidden door in my room. A hidden door right there? It feels really hollow!"
The father, after reviewing the map a few times, directs his daughter to the spot on her bedroom wall where the map seems to be leading them. She pounds on the wall, noticing that the wood does in fact sound "hollow." She then anxiously waits on her bed with her mom and grandma, giggling with excitement, as her dad uses a power saw to cut through the wall.
Finally, the moment they'd been waiting for - the little girl cautiously peels back the wood panel to reveal a small area behind her bedroom wall. She steps inside the secret room and discovers a miniature box full of golden "treasures" that the pirates stashed long ago.
This loving father, even before knowing his daughter, created an unforgettable, real-life treasure hunt for her - an experience she will certainly never forget!
