The video of a 13-year-old girl, Miracle, has got many emotional on Twitter. The girl was all teary when she got her adoption news after spending six years in a foster home.
In a video shared by NowThis, the girl sat in a hammock as she rocked herself back and forth while reading a letter that was sent by her prospective adopting family.
The letter, written by a member of the family, expressed how thankful they were in hope that she would move in with them.
The family added that despite her sassiness, they still very much love her. A part of the letter read:
“Words cannot express how much I love you. I am so thankful you got to move in with us right before Christmas. We love having you here even when you fart or get sassy with me. You really complete our life.”
When Miracle got to the part of the letter that said they would like to adopt her, she broke down crying.
It should be noted that Sarah Stilwell Shrewsbury and her husband, Martin, who adopted Miracle, have also adopted four other children.
Before the teen became a part of their family, her brother, Kahari, was a member of the household.
“Helping a child see they are loved and worthy of love is the most important job I have ever had!”
