As Soon As She Met Her New Adopted Sister, the Tears of Joy Didn’t Stop
Couple Shane and Kasi Pruitt have two biological daughters, 11-year-old Raygen and six-year-old Harper, two adopted sons named Titus and Elliot. They decided they would love to bring another adopted child, this time an infant, into their family. When they finally brought the baby girl home, their daughters’ reaction to their new baby sister turned out to be more emotional than expected.
“They would ask all the time, ‘Have you gotten a call? When is our brother or sister coming home?’” Shane told ABC News in an interview. “And they definitely wanted a sister,” he added.
After waiting for almost a year, Shane and Kasi finally got a call from their lawyer and once they finally brought their new baby daughter home, Shane made sure to film their daughters’ reaction to their baby sister’s arrival.
In a Facebook post, Sunday, Shane shared the clip of the big reveal and it was so touching that it has received much attention on social media with 100,000 views so far and over 300 shares.
“OUR FAMILY HAS GROWN: So, this happened OUT OF NOWHERE yesterday. We prayed FAST and felt like the LORD answered FAST! Our kids had no clue, and this is how we told them about their BABY SISTER,” wrote Shane in the post.
In the video, Harper can be heard screaming “Are you kidding me?” once she noticed her mom coming towards them holding a little baby. Raygen, on the other hand, softly asked, “What is that?”
When their mom answered, “She’s your new baby sister,” the two girls screamed and jumped with delight and started to shed tears of joy.
Shane said that their daughters’ reactions made him proud and with regard to the video going viral, the father told ABC News: “If it shines a lot on adoption and encourages other families to step up and be foster parents or adopt, then that’s the ultimate win.”
