Texas parents surprised their kids by bringing home a newly adopted sister


A Texas couple is sharing the joy of a surprise adoption.

Shane and Kasi Pruitt of Rowlett kept the adoption of a baby girl a secret from their two biological daughters, who they say had been hoping for a younger sister.

They posted a video showing the older girls' reaction as they met their new sister for the first time.

Their two oldest daughters squealed with delight and burst into tears when they saw the little girl.

The Pruitt family now totals seven. They also have two adopted sons.

Video of the reaction has been viewed more than 80,000 times on Facebook and thousands more on Twitter.

Shane Pruitt says his family is humbled by the impact of the video and honored to have been chosen by the little girl's birth parents to raise her.
