There are over 400,000 children currently residing in American foster homes. These little ones need homes and they do not always receive the attention that they deserve. When these children are finally adopted, the process can be a long and arduous one. Once the adoption has finally been made official by the court system, the family is able to celebrate like never before.

We have compiled a series of pictures that is well worth your time. Before you take the time to look at these photos, be sure to grab a tissue or two. You are going to need them!
