Michigan Foster Child Invites Entire Kindergarten Class to His Adoption Ceremony

A kindergartener in Michigan is capturing hearts after he invited his entire class to his adoption hearing on Thursday. Michael Clark Jr. has spent the past year living with foster parents Andrea Melvin and Dave Eaton before he was officially made their child in a Kent County courtroom. Everyone from his class at Wealthy Elementary in East Grand Rapids was on hand to lend their support, even waving paper hearts during the proceeding. “He said, ‘You know, the class is kind of my family.’ And he wanted them to be there,” Eaton says. Kindergarten teacher Kerry McKee adds, “The lesson is, put a little love in your heart. We rise when we support others.”
