Boy's adorable reaction to being adopted is going viral

Boy's adorable reaction to being adopted is going viral

The fact that Michael has the same surname as Tara's daughters is coincidental, but Tara told ABC News that it helped them feel like he was "part of our family right from the start".

Michael was allowed to be adopted by the courts after his case plan changed from reuniting him with his mom to severance and adoption.

At first, Tara had second thoughts about the little boy being placed to her, because she was a single parent.

This picture of an ecstatic Michael posted by Dezhianna on Twitter has been shared over 138,000 times.

Brown's tweet has close to 50,000 retweets in under two days and has the internet happy-panicking over how sweet he is. But she says the family just clicked with Michael.

Michael was set to be adopted last month, but the date was postponed to this week due to the high number of adoptions.

Vote is in: Dump the Electoral College
Each candidate spent most to their time and resources trying to win each of the states that they thought were winnable. The House will choose the new president based on a state-by-state vote, with each state having one ballot.

"My children's last name is Brown".

She spoke of how settled her new brother has become at finally being adopted into the family.

He was so excited that he couldn't help but tell the entire courthouse the news - by holding up a chalkboard with the message: "Some things are worth the wait, after 832 days in foster care today I'm adopted".

"After his mom's rights were severed, I knew he was going to be ours forever", she said. Another has him posing with Brown and another adoptive sister.

More happy stuff like this in 2017, please.

We are so happy that Michael is officially a member of the Brown family, just in time for the holidays.
