This week, Shane Pruitt and his wife, Kasi, added a baby girl to their family of six after receiving a call about a “quick adoption.”
Pruitt, who serves as Director of Missions of the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention, received a call Thursday morning from a local lawyer who told him about a child who was up for adoption. Shane and Kasi prayed about the decision before finally saying “yes” to the new addition, a baby girl named Celsey Marie.
While the couple was sure to consult God beforehand, their other four children were completely unaware that their lives were about to change.
In a video posted to his Facebook page Thursday, Pruitt shares the story about the last-minute adoption, and muses that his kids “have no clue.” In that same video, Shane and Kasi proceed to document their children’s reactions as they meet their new baby sister for the first time.
The reactions of their two oldest daughters, Raygen and Harper, are absolutely priceless:
Pruitt tweeted the happy news Thursday, and it wasn’t long before the internet fell in love with the video, and baby Celsey Marie.
Love this, man. Thank you for sharing.
