Sisters Overcome with Joy After Finding New Adopted Baby Brother Under Christmas Tree

This is slightly better than that video of the kid freaking out about getting an Nintendo 64

This is a good palate cleanser before the inevitable deluge of “kids reacting to their Christmas presents” videos.

Courtney Solstad’s Texas family adopted a new baby boy, Nathan, this month. Her other children didn’t know anything about him, so, as she writes, “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!”

Solstad’s daughters are beside themselves with happiness, actually shedding tears of joy at their introduction to their new little brother.

Under the tree, next to Nathan, a chalkboard with the prompt “My Christmas Wish List” reads, “for my mom and dad to have the baby they desire.” It left out the part where the family becomes Internet stars for a really good, touching reason, but we’ll forgive the error.
