Woman's Reaction to Newly Adopted Granddaughter Will Make You Melt (VIDEO)

baby feetThere's nothing like the excitement of a new grandma when she sees her grandchild for the very first time, especially when she didn't even know she was going to be a grandma! Just ask Sharon Bloomingdale, whose daughter and son-in-law surprised her at work with their newly adopted baby -- when they hadn't even told her they were matched with an infant yet!

The adoption process can be a notoriously long one, but Laura and Josh Dell were blessed with a baby girl just three weeks after being approved by an agency. Naturally, Laura's mom Sharon (who was adopted herself as a baby) wasn't expecting to be made a grandma so soon, either. But instead of, say, giving her the good news over the phone, Laura and Josh decided to bring 5-month-old baby Ellie to Sharon's workplace as a surprise -- the very same day they got her! 

And their attempts to give poor Sharon the shock of her life didn't end there. They didn't just walk in carrying the baby -- first, they handed her a gift to unwrap: A baby onesie. Just check out her reaction in this video!

How sweet is that?! I love how Sharon immediately knew what was going on the second she saw that onesie. And how she nearly collapsed at the sight of the baby! According to Laura, "After the video ended, she walked around the office with Ellie and told everyone, 'When I came to work this morning, I wasn't a grandma and now I am." 

"It'll be great for Ellie to see the video when she grows up and know that Grandma loved her even before she got to know her," she said.

Congratulations to the whole family!
