After a 10-month wait, Kasi and Shane Pruitt finally got the news that they were going to be able to adopt a baby girl. However, they decided to keep the adoption a secret from their two daughters, 6-year-old Harper and 11-year-old Raygen, in case it fell through.

The Pruitts have previously adopted two boys, Titus and Elliot, and the kids were aware that their parents had intentions of expanding their family. Shane explained, “Our kids had no clue.” When the girls saw their sister, Harper said, “Are you kidding me?” and an emotional Raygen began to cry. He added, “And they definitely wanted a sister.”
