Talk about a cheering squad!

Yesterday was a big day for 36 kids in Kent County, and an even extra-special day for a little boy named Michael - he was in court to finalize his adoption to his new family.

That's good news by itself, but what makes it even more special was that his entire kindergarten class was there to support him.

They all waved paper hearts in the air as the judge allowed Michael to hit the gavel and finalize his adoption to his forever family.

Santa Claus was on hand to spread some Christmas cheer to all the families and kids, too. What an amazing day for everybody!
