It’s not every day that you’re surprised with a brand new baby sister—especially one you knew nothing about.
But on the off-chance that you are ambushed with this awesome surprise, it’s highly unlikely for your reaction to beat that of Rowlett, Texas, sisters Raygen and Harper Pruitt.
The girls’ parents, Shane and Kasi Pruitt, had been working for the past 10 months to adopt another child into the family.
Raygen, 11, and Harper, 6, were ecstatic for their baby brother or baby sister to join them and their adopted brothers Titus and Elliott.
For months, they anticipated the day their parents would get “the call,” and both girls desperately wanted a baby sister.
Shane said he and Kasi prayed for a fast adoption, “and the Lord answered fast!”
On the night of July 25, the couple got the call. There was a newborn baby girl waiting for them at the hospital, where they could pick her up the next morning.
In an effort to shield their kids from any heartbreak if something fell through, the Pruitts kept the news a secret, making the surprise that much sweeter!
