3-Year-Old Has The Best Reaction To Being Adopted After 832 Days In Foster Care
December 23, 2016
Tara Montgomery did not initially set out to adopt, but 3-year-old Michael changed her plans.
Tara was Michael's third foster family. He was 18 months old at the time. When the original plan for him to reunite with his biological mom fell through, her rights were severed, which meant Montgomery could adopt him.
"As a single parent, I was not looking to adopt, just to help kids during transition," she said. "But that changed with Michael. It felt like he was a part of our family right from the start."
On Dec. 20, 2016, Montgomery officially adopted Michael in Phoenix. He had spent 832 days in foster care.
His face says it all.

"He wakes in the morning and says, 'Mom, I so happy.'"
Montgomery's daughters tweeted photos from Michael's adoption day on Tuesday. The photos have more than 150,000 likes.
Montgomery says she is grateful that her son's photos are bringing awareness to adoption.
"If this can inspire just one person to make a difference in the life of a child, we are happy."
