Eva thought it was a great surprise when her son Donny Goeb and daughter-in-law Miranda arrived unannounced in Franklin, Indiana. The couple were on leave from their Air Force base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The joy of their unexpected homecoming was quickly trumped when Eva saw a tiny baby girl. The Goeb’s had told their families they were looking to adopt but kept Melissa Faith, nicknamed Lily, a secret. The baby was born on December 8, 2015. The two did not share the news with Eva earlier because they wanted to make sure the adoption process would go through. “We chose not to tell our families due to so many unknowns. We wanted to protect our hearts and theirs,” explains Miranda. With Lily’s arrival, the husband and wife decided that the news was too big to tell it over the phone. Based on Eva’s reaction to meeting her granddaughter, that was the best kept secret and probably one of the happiest days of her life.
