Little Girl Can't Hold Back Her Emotions When Foster Mom Turns And Tells Her "Today's Your Day."
Spending years growing up in the foster care system can be an uncertain time for many children. Those of us who have always lived with our birth families or were adopted as babies often don't have a true understanding of how blessed we are just to have that sense of belonging and security.
For a little girl named Shailee, finding a forever family seemed like an elusive dream. Thanks to one loving family, however, it was a dream that was finally about to come true.
Shailee had become very close to her foster parents and foster brother. It seemed like a perfect fit. Her foster parents told her that they were planning to adopt her, and she eagerly anticipated the day she would become an official legal member of this loving forever family.
Her foster parents couldn't wait until they could finally adopt this sweet girl with a contagious smile. They wanted the actual date of her adoption to be a big surprise.
They wanted it to be a special day Shailee would never forget.
On the big day, the parents picked their kids up from school just like they normally would.
After turning on the camera to record this milestone moment, Shailee's foster mom turned to her and her foster dad revealed the exciting news that it was the day they'd all been waiting for: adoption day!
He told her that they would be going to the courthouse that day to finalize the adoption process. Shailee immediately got a look of absolute surprise and delight on her face.
With wide eyes, she questioned incredulously, "Really? You're lying!"
Her mom then told her, "Today's your day."
Shailee was then overcome with emotion, crying tears of joy and gratitude. Finally, she was going to be able to stay in a forever home with her very own mom, dad, and brother!
