6-Year-Old Is Overcome With Emotions After He Is Finally Adopted

One young man could not contain himself after learning he had been adopted.

Every child removed from their homes and birth parents has experienced some traumatic circumstances. All children want and deserve to be in a place and with someone who will care for and love them. Love, safety and security shouldn’t be too much to ask for, especially for a child.

In a clip posted on YouTube, 6-year-old Harvey was over the moon after learning that he had found himself a forever family and home. He was literally jumping for joy at the news.

The video begins with the little guy waiting as he reclines on a plastic chair outside on a porch. Seconds into the clip, a female voice tells Harvey they have something they must tell him.

“There’s something special that happened yesterday,” the woman tells the 6-year-old. “Do you know what might have happened yesterday?”

Harvey has no idea what may have happened during the previous 24-hour period.

The person holding the camera then pans to the right and reveals a man standing with a board with Harvey’s name. However, the man points to two words, “forever ours.”

Harvey is still a little confused about the meaning of those words. 

The man lets the little guy in on the big news.

“How about Harvey is officially adopted?” the man says.

Harvey sits up and lets out an audible gasp after learning he has an adoptive mother and father. 

He’s still unsure and proceeds to ask if what he has heard is correct.

“I’m adopted?” Harvey asks. “I’m adopted right now?”

He asks, “I’m going to stay here?”

Once his questions are answered, and he understands he does not have to leave, the little guy is over the moon.

The video ends with Harvey approaching the woman behind the camera for a hug.

Psalm 127:3 “See, children are a heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.”
