Soldier Unexpectedly Returns Home to Wife after 2 Months, Finds Unknown Baby in Their Bedroom — Story of the Day
A soldier comes home after a three-month absence and is shocked to find a newborn baby in his house, especially since his wife wasn’t pregnant when he left.
The baby was lying between two large pillows and it was waving tiny fists in the air. Adam walked closer and stared down at the child. It yawned at him, showing pink gums, then it started to cry. Loudly. Adam didn’t know what to do!
When Adam Harris came home from the Middle East after a two-month stretch, the last thing he expected to find on his bed was a baby. He stood in the doorway just staring!

He knew it wasn’t his and Kathy’s. Kathy hadn’t been pregnant seven months ago, he knew that. In fact, Kathy and Adam had been desperately trying to get pregnant for six years now. They had gone through several rounds of IVF, to no avail.
He sat down on the bed, picked up the child, and jiggled it awkwardly. The baby hiccuped and started sucking on a fist. “There, there…” Adam said. Who was this kid? Where did it come from?
Sometimes what you most desire comes into your life in an unexpected way.
Adam hummed at the kid who just kept staring at him with those squinty, unfocused newborn eyes. “Who are you?” he asked, then a quiet voice behind him said, “She’s ours if you agree…”
Kathy sat down next to Adam and kissed him tenderly. “It’s a long story…” she sighed.
Adam turned with the baby in his hands to find his wife standing there. “Kathy!” he cried. “What’s going on?”

“I’ve got all the time in the world,” Adam said.
“Well…” Kathy sighed. “Remember how upset I was after the last IVF treatment failed?” Adam nodded. It had hit Kathy hard, and the result had been depression and therapy.
