Sweet Little Girl Tells Her Adoptive Mom About the First Time They Met in Video


Whether because of adoption, a blended family or a biological family, there’s something special about the bond between a mother or father and their children.

While kids may be kids and might not always express their gratitude for their parents, there are moments of sweetness that come through when a kid takes a moment to recognize the role their parents have played in their lives.

For many, this comes in the form of kids asking a step-parent to become their adoptive parent.

Often given as a birthday or Christmas present, adoption papers are an official step toward an unspoken agreement between parent and child.
