When A Couple Adopted Their Baby Girl, They Kept It A Secret From One Person- The Grandma-To-Be

cute_grandmacover_thumb.jpgThe biggest celebrations in life always seem like the hardest to keep secret; they are usually so excited that any new information usually gets shared with as many people as people. Because who doesn’t love sharing momentous and life- changing news with others?

And if you have ever been involved in the adoption process or know of someone who has, then you know that it’s a long, grueling, and exciting process filled with curveballs and happy tears. The process typically lasts more than a year and with international adoptions, the process can take up to 5 years! If you're thinking about keeping a secret for that long, it can seem pretty intimidating.

For new parents-to-be, Josh and Laura, the element of surprise during their adoption process was an absolute must. The couple, who have been married since 2013, started the adoption process with the simple hope of adding a baby girl to their lives. They were so excited to get a baby and shower it with love. Laura was especially excited to dress her new mini and she couldn't wait to put her in her favorite baby item of all: baby shoes! Don't you just love baby shoes?! They are just so cute and tiny!

 Adopting families fight hard to keep this end goal in sight. And while this process can sometimes appear impossible, it never actually is, because, love triumphs all. Josh and Laura experienced the craziness of the adoption process and had their family and friends to encourage them along the way. All but one that is... Laura’s mom- who knew that her daughter and son-in-law were considering adoption- was the last to know of this exciting adventure. While she knew they had been approved for a home- study, she had no idea just how far along they were in the process.
