This American couple decided to introduce their new adopted baby son to the family in quite an unconventional way.
Courtney Solstad from McKinney, Texas, wrote on Facebook that the family of five welcomed little Nathan into their family last week through adoption.
They left him under the Christmas tree, after telling their children that they had been out to get them a present.
Mrs. Solstad said that their three girls had been excited at the prospect of adopting a baby, and that one of their daughters had even written it down as a Christmas wish.
“Chloe’s Christmas wish came true,” she wrote.
The parents filmed their children’s reactions as they were surprised by the new addition to the family.
“The girls knew nothing about Nathan until this,” she wrote. “We met them at the door and told them that we had been out Christmas shopping and got them a gift to share… and it was under the tree.”
One of the daughters started crying with happiness.
They all jumped around and screamed with excitement about the new baby boy.
The video soon spread through Facebook, with many commenters wishing the family a happy holiday with their new addition.
The mother wrote that welcoming Nathan into the family was “one of the most magical experiences in our lives.”
“We prayed big things and God answered in big ways,” she wrote. “Our little guy is so incredibly perfect.”
