But first a quick story to remind you that there are still plenty of good people in this world…
Once a child in the U.S. foster care system reaches the age of 13, it’s highly unlikely that they’ll ever be adopted.
In fact, as many as 20,000 teenagers age out of the foster care system each year when they reach legal age…
…which is what makes the story of Leah and Monyay so extraordinary.
Leah is a caseworker who helps connect children in the foster care system with foster parents.
Monyay is a 19-year-old who has been in the system for most of her life.
Six years ago, Leah was assigned to Monyay’s case and the two formed a close bond.
Today, they’re officially mother and daughter.
“I made her a promise that I would find her an adoptive family,” an emotional Leah said.
“I just didn’t know that I would be the adoptive family.”
Because of her position as a case worker, Leah had to wait until Monyay turned 19 and aged out of the system to officially adopt her.
But with no more hurdles in the way, Monyay’s new life lies ahead.
“Everything is official, the one thing that I wanted since I was a kid has finally come true,” she told a local reporter.
