This boy’s definition of family will warm your heart.

A Michigan kindergartner brought his entire class to witness his adoption hearing Thursday in an adorable courtroom scene marking Kent County’s annual Adoption Day.



The county’s official Facebook page posted a photo of the young boy, identified only as Michael, sitting next to his foster parents as his classmates watched in the back with paper hearts in their hands.

He was one of 37 children being adopted in the Kent County court Thursday.

“There is not a dry eye on Judge Patricia Gardner’s courtroom,” county officials wrote in a separate Facebook post.

It’s Adoption Day at the Kent County Courthouse. 37 children are being lovingly and officially welcomed by their families. There is not a dry eye on Judge Patricia Gardner’s courtroom.

The hearings appeared to be a formal procedure to finalize their adoptions. The court gave each family a 30-minute hearing to celebrate the end of the process, local ABC affiliate WHAS reported.

CASA of Kent County, one of the sponsors of Adoption Day, congratulated the boy with its own social media post.

“It’s adoption day at the courthouse — the BEST day of the year!” the nonprofit wrote. “Congratulations to Michael and his family ... so cool that his entire class came to support him!”
