Grandparents finding out that they are soon to get a grandchild is just as cute as a couple finding out that they are going to have a baby. And, it’s safe to say that this lady was quite excited that she was having a granddaughter, especially when you remember that it was a surprise.
Eva Goeb of Franklin, Indiana loves to get visits from her son and daughter-in-law, as they rarely see each other due to being very far apart, as both the son and daughter-in-law are in the Air Force.
At the time when this video was filmed, which was near the end of 2015, Donny and Miranda were stationed in Honolulu, Hawaii, and at the time, they were in the process of becoming adoptive parents.
Through a friend from the Air Force, the couple was able to find a birth mother. Either way, both Donny and Miranda didn’t say a lot regarding the adoption, and the reason was explained on Donny’s GoFundMe page:
“We decided to keep the placement a secret from our families because adoption placements can fail. We didn’t want to tell them that they had a granddaughter too soon only to painfully recant our announcement.”
Luckily for these two loyal soldiers, the adoption went through, and on December 8, 2015, Donny and Miranda became parents to Melissa “Lily” Faith.
They didn’t actually plan to visit the grandparents over the holidays, but they wanted to share the good news.
The newly-minted mama explains, “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.”
Once these three made it to the home of Lily’s grandparents, someone broke out the camera to film the grandmother’s reaction when she saw her granddaughter.
To say that the reaction was extreme would be quite the understatement. Check out the video of the euphoric grandmother holding her “secret” granddaughter for the first time, jumps of excitement included:
As Miranda describes, “They [her in-laws] were shocked, enamored, in awe and in love simultaneously.”
