Incredibly beautiful adoption story!

Home is where the heart is, and one little boy wanted to make sure his kindergarten friends were witness to where his heart was going during his own adoption hearing.

On Thursday in Michigan courtroom, 36 children officially got welcomed into forever homes.

One Majical child named Michael Orlando Clark Jr. invited his entire kindergarten class to join him at his adoption hearing as he celebrated joining his new family.

“We began the school year as a family,” Clark’s teacher said. “Family doesn’t have to be DNA, because family is support and love.”
Each of Clark’s classmates introduced themselves and told the Judge why they were there. Many expressed their love for Clark too, 13 On Your Side reported.

“Michael is my best friend,” his classmate, Steven said.

Once the gavel slammed down to make it official, the courtroom including the adorable little kindergartners exploded with applause.

“Sometimes their journeys have been very long, they’ve included miracle and change for the children and family and incredible community support as you’re able to see today in Michael’s adoption hearing,” Honorable Judge Patricia Gardner said.

“His whole kindergarten class and school being here to say ‘we love you,’ and ‘we support you’ and ‘we’ll be here not only today but in all the years in the future.'”

The court allowed each family involved a half-hour hearing to celebrate their adoption with family and friends.
