Three-year-old Michael Brown was in the foster care system for 832 days. On December 20, 2016, Michael was adopted by Tara Montgomery, a single mom with two daughters, and his adoption day pictures say it all — he was too excited to be adopted by his forever family.
Michael was placed with Montgomery when he was 18 months old. “As a single parent, I was not looking to adopt, just to help kids during transition,” Montgomery told Huffington Post. “But that changed with Michael. It felt like he was a part of our family right from the start.”
She added, “[Michael] wakes in the morning and says, ‘Mom, I so happy.'”
Following his adoption, Michael’s sister Dezhianna tweeted the photos and they went viral. They’ve been liked 133K times and retweeted 53K times.

It’s no surprise why Michael’s pictures went viral — he is the most adorable kid ever! And if anything, his new Twitter fame is doing good things, like inspiring others to adopt:
“If this can inspire just one person to make a difference in the life of a child, we are happy,” said Michael’s mom.
