For couples that are unable to conceive their own child, adoption has always been the go-to alternative. Adoption is more than just adding a new member to the household – it completely changes the life of a child. A loving home is capable of providing structure, support and a level of care that orphanages and foster homes just can't give. These are important factors in a child's development in order for them to avoid problems like depression, anxiety and behavioral problems.
Eva Goeb's day started like any other when she got an unexpected visit from her son, Donny, and his wife, Miranda. Both served in the Air Force until Miranda retired in September to start a family. It was not without its difficulties, but eventually they were able to adopt a beautiful baby, Melissa Faith (whom they nicknamed Lily). Meeting Lily for the first time, Eva's reaction was absolutely priceless.
