This is a sweet reminder that life has its moments of joy.
“Some Mondays are better than others.” That’s how school secretary JackieAlex introduces the touching clip she shared of her telling a young girl her adoption with her foster family went through after years of legal problems.
JackieAlex explained on Instagram:
“A dear family I know has been fighting for as long as I can remember to adopt 3 of their foster children that attend our school. It’s been hard to watch them fight this emotional battle. My love has grown for this family and I have learned so much from them as they have tried to remain positive despite many set backs.
“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.”
She adds, “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.”
The clip says the rest. Watch and share this moment of joy with your friends and family.
