Successful adoption stories? Well, there’s simply nothing better. And based on a few totally adorable pictures, the internet is going crazy over one story in particular. Little Michael Brown was officially adopted by his foster family, and his reaction shots to the news are pretty darn incredible.

But first, of course there’s some “we’re not crying, you’re crying!” details that we don’t want to leave out. This family is actually Michael’s third foster family, which means that he’s endured quite a journey in his three short years.

Yes — Michael is just a three-year-old who learned, very quickly, how incredible it is to find a loving home.

His new family noted that Michael came to them in 2015 as a shy boy, but became more outgoing and confident as time went on. Which is why these photos are so amazing. (Especially the one on the left.)

It’s obvious that all of this was definitely worth the wait, as Michael’s chalkboard states. Above and to the right, he’s posing proudly with his new sisters, Jordae and Dezhianna.

It’s obvious that Michael couldn’t have found a better match with these two.

By watching this little montage of Michael moments, you’ll fall more and more in love with his story.

We are so happy that Michael is officially a member of the Brown family, just in time for the holidays. We know that the greatest gift of all is love, and it looks like Michael’s already got a lot of it.
