When there came a gentle knock on the door, Eva, filled with curiosity, swung it open to reveal her son and daughter-in-law, fresh from their return from Hawaii. Miranda and Donny had been serving together as a dual Air Force family in Hawaii since 2008.

Little did Eva know, the couple had a monumental surprise in store for her. They had recently welcomed Lily into their lives through adoption and had flown home to share the joyous news with Eva.

“We made the decision not to inform our families due to the uncertainty of the situation,” Miranda shared with WTHR news. “We wanted to shield our hearts and theirs from potential disappointment. It was a leap of faith. Once Lily was officially placed with us and became our daughter, we felt it was a momentous occasion worthy of an in-person announcement.”

The video capturing Eva’s reaction to this heartwarming news is nothing short of extraordinary, a moment that must be witnessed to truly grasp its emotional impact.
