Adopting a baby can be a long and difficult process. Many couples try for years to adopt a child, only to be met with endless red tape and disappointment.
It would be easy for these people — and their relatives — to give up all hope, but the immense challenge only makes it that much sweeter if they’re finally able to bring that new baby home. Miranda and Donny are a U.S. Air Force couple who had been stationed at JB Pearl Harbor Hickam while undergoing a lengthy adoption process.
When they got leave to go home for Christmas, they decided to surprise their families with their return. But when they finally got there, they had an even bigger surprise for Donny’s mom, Eva.
It was a long process, and Miranda and Donny weren’t sure if it would even work. Christmas was fast approaching, and they wanted to be able to celebrate with a new addition to their family. They were keeping their fingers crossed.
The couple’s adoption of baby Melissa Faith (nicknamed Lily) was approved just before the holidays, so they kept her a secret for 10 whole days before making the big reveal. It’s safe to say that becoming a grandmother is the best Christmas gift Eva could have ever received!
