This is pure testament that in a world full of turmoil and strife, there is still light and joy to be found in little everyday moments.
A little girl who has been trying to get adopted by a foster family for years finally got the news that the papers went through. The news was delivered by the school secretary, Jackie Alexander, who the little girl visits every day to say “hello.”
Jackie wrote on Instagram:
“Today my phone rang at my desk and it was my friend Jen telling me things FINALLY had come to an end and the courts were going to let them ADOPT the children!! She asked me if I would be sure to tell her sweet girl when she came to my desk for her daily visit. She knew she would want to know right away because she had been so worried. I don’t think even I could understand myself what that moment would feel like. Our security cameras caught the moment perfectly. I cry as I type this. In 12 years at this job, this is by far my best moment ever!! To tell a little girl that she gets her family forever takes the cake. I can’t even describe that hug…and thank heavens her mom doesn’t mind that I kissed her a million times, and a million more after the film cuts off. A moment needed after waking up to another morning of devastating news on t.v….but a sweet reminder today that life can be and still is beautiful in spite of it all.”
