A child’s final adoption hearing is a wonderful moment when the little one gets to enjoy the last steps of joining their forever family. Sweet kiddos, overjoyed parents and supportive family members and friends can usually all be seen in the courtroom as the judge declares that things are all wrapped up. Five-year-old Danielle Koning received an extra surprise when seven Disney princesses, along with Prince Charming, showed up to celebrate.
Wanting to make the day as special as possible and knowing how much the little one loves Cinderella, Danielle’s case-worker approached a co-worker to ask if she would mind dressing up like the Disney princess as a surprise. When others in their office heard about the plan, they offered to dress up as well, resulting in not only Cinderella, but also Prince Charming, Elsa, Ariel, Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty and Snow White attending the hearing. With even the judge ditching her robe to get in on the princess theme, it was smiles all around when Danielle used the gavel to pronounce that the adoption finalization was “so ordered.”
Dressed in her own glittery gown and tiny tiara, Danielle was no doubt the true princess of the event.
