Five-year-old Danielle Koning was eager for her adoption finalization hearing this month in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She's been a foster child with the Konings since March, 2014, and all agreed they should be her forever family. Danielle's case worker knew she was extremely fond of Cinderella and the other Disney princesses, so imagine the expression on Danielle's face when Cinderella walked into the hearing room, along with Sleeping Beauty, Elsa and Ariel, all to support her on her special day!
Danielle's caseworker, Laura Mitchell, said it was a special situation that snowballed. Even Judge Patricia Gardner revealed a Snow White costume beneath her robe. Danielle's new mom said, "No matter what, if kids have been bounced around a lot, it really helps them to feel that they're not going anywhere now. The look on her face was priceless."
