When a couple brings home a new baby, it’s not just life-changing for them, but for the entire family.
Typically, everyone knows beforehand that mom and dad will be walking through the door with a new bundle of joy. But in the story below – it was a complete surprise!
In 2017, the Pruitt family consisted of Mommy Kasi, Daddy Shane, their biological daughters Raygen, 11, and Harper, 6, and their two beautiful adopted sons Titus and Elliot.
One summer day, Mommy Kasi came home with a little surprise for everyone.
In the video below, Kasi is seen entering their home with a newborn baby girl, and as she goes into the kitchen, her younger daughter exclaims:
“Are you kidding me?”
Raygen is shocked at first too, and then she bursts into tears out of pure love and joy as she looks at the beautiful infant for the first time.
She was the 7th member of the Pruitt family – their youngest adopted child.
Raygen and Harper knew that they were planning on adopting a child for about 10 months, and they were excited about a new addition.
Shane told ABC News:
“They would ask all the time, ‘Have you gotten a call? When is our brother or sister coming home?’ And they definitely wanted a sister.”
But on the day the video was taken – the girls had no clue that their dream for a baby sister had come true!
It was actually Shane who posted the video on Twitter. The video went viral and many people loved the two girls’ reactions.
They were honest, pure, and full of joy. It was love at first sight and it was beyond beautiful!
Shane Pruitt explained to ABC News:
“Our kids had no clue.”
The dad told Inside Edition that a day before the viral video, he and his wife received a call about the adoption status.
Both of them were so ecstatic! And who wouldn’t be? Welcoming a new baby into a family is always a blessing.
The next day, they were off to meet their beautiful baby girl. They didn’t tell their kids though… They wanted it to be a surprise, and in the event that something didn’t go well, the kids wouldn’t be disappointed.
That day, Kasi and Shane left the house early in the morning, returning home with a brand new family member. Before entering the house, they decided to capture the sweet moment of revealing this wonderful blessing to their children.
The video has over 1.4 million views and is still warming hearts around the globe.
The clip was actually supposed to be their birth announcement, but who would have thought that it would reach so many?
Today, their family of 7 is stronger than ever. They want to share with the world how adoption has made their family more loving and of course, complete.
Watch the video below to see the girls’ priceless reactions to mom walking in with a brand new sister. Just know, you might want to have a box of tissues handy!
