This Mom Has No Idea She’s a Grandmother, Then BAM!—Best Reaction EVER! #Adoption

An unsuspecting mom named Eva got the surprise of her life last week. She was excited to get to welcome her military son and daughter-in-law home for Christmas,but she had no idea they would come bearing MUCH MORE than just Christmas gifts! Unbeknownst to Eva, her son Donny and daughter-in-law Miranda had adopted a baby girl just ten days before. They named her Melissa Faith and call her “Lily”.

“We chose not to tell our families due to so many unknowns,” Miranda told WTHR news. “We wanted to protect our hearts and theirs. We were taking a huge leap of faith. Once the baby Lily was officially placed with us, to become our daughter, we decided that it was not the type of news to be shared over the phone.”

As you can see, Eva was OVERJOYED at becoming a grandma—and this video moved me to tears! Adoption is so, so, SO very beautiful! Merry Christmas to the happy family!
