Parents Surprise Foster Child With Adoption
FaithTap Staff 12/4/2015
When Christmas was approaching, foster child Haven Dockins got the surprise of her life. The best part is - she didn't expect it. She had been in foster care for 10 years, over half her life, and had been in and out of diffrent foster homes many times. When she was welcomed into her newest foster home with 11 children, and 5 of them already being adopted, 16 year old Haven finally felt like she was at home.
Christmas was drawing near, and Haven only wanted to be adopted. Gifts were far from her mind when all she could think of was family. But her family was thinking of her too and had a big surprise up their sleeve. Her foster parents took her to family court rather than school that day, along with their other 5 adopted kids, but Haven still didn't think anything of it since she had been there countless times.
But when the judge was there, granting her adoption, Haven was not only surprised, but thrilled to have a new family as her own. Haven's response was priceless: "This is the best Christmas I’ve ever had in my whole life.”
