Little did she know that Christmas arrived early that year when she received a call on a Thursday afternoon with incredible news.

“Our social worker was calling to tell me about a baby that had been born the day before, and that we had been chosen for him. I could not absorb the information quickly enough. I said, ‘YES YES YES!’ and called my husband, but he didn’t answer,” she shared.

“I texted him, ‘911- call me!’ Surely this would get him on the phone quickly. Another 5 minutes went by, I finally gave up and texted ‘We got a baby, it’s a boy! CALL ME!'” she added.

At that point, Solstad and her partner hadn’t informed their children about the surprise. Instead, she searched the internet for creative ways to reveal the news to them but found none.

“Sitting on the couch, holding our new baby boy when the doorbell rang… they were home and had no idea what was about to happen!” she said.

“My husband jumped up, and suggested we lay him on a blanket near the Christmas tree and let them meet him that way. So that’s what we did!” she added.

Describing her kids’ reactions, she said:

“Our oldest was in shock! I don’t think she thought we could keep it a secret from her! Our youngest daughter jumped up and down and was so overjoyed, and our very compassionate middle girl cried tears of pure joy!”

Inside Edition uploaded the video showcasing the kids’ reactions, and they were priceless! Truly the best Christmas gift ever!

Solstad periodically shares photos of her little boy, and he looks happy and healthy!
