Eva was home when her son, Donny and daughter-in-law, Miranda surprised her with a visit from Hawaii where they were both stationed as an Air Force family.
But Miranda and Donny didn’t arrive empty-handed. Eva was about to discover that she was a new grandmother! She was about to meet her newly adopted granddaughter for the very first time! Miranda and Donny had begun the adoption process in October of 2015 and ended up adopted a little girl named Melissa Faith, (also known as 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.”
Donny hid the secret from his mum for almost ten day before Miranda and himself flew home to surprise her.
