A Kindergarten Boy Invited His Entire Class to His Adoption and My Heart Is Full

When Michael Clark Jr. was helping his foster parents plan his adoption day, he wanted to invite his whole kindergarten class for the best reason.

He told his new dad, “You know, the class is kind of my family.”

His teacher at Wealthy Elementary School in East Grand Rapids, Michigan, made it happen and on Thursday, she and his classmates waved red hearts and watched as Michael was officially adopted by his foster parents, Andrea Melvin and Dave Eaton.

“We began the school year as a family,” said his teacher, Kerry McKee. “Family doesn’t have to be DNA, because family is support and love.”

Michael’s classmates each introduced themselves to Judge Patricia Gardner, and told them why they were in her courtroom, and why they loved Michael too.

“The lesson is put a little love in your heart,” said Ms. McKee. “We rise when we support others.”

Michael has lived with his foster parents for a year and, after Thursday, is now a part of their forever family just before the holidays. He love to dance, swim, play basketball and soccer, and especially spent time with his friends.

For one special kindergarten class, this will always be a field trip to remember.
