Video: Video: Feel good video of the day: A while back, my family adopted a girl from out of state. This unfortunately meant that she was separated from her older foster sister that she grew up with, who was not eligible for adoption. When that status changed we got my sister a very special Christmas present.

I am the rightful owner of this video. This video may not be duplicated in whole in or part without my written consent. Our recently adopted daughter's surprise for Christmas was that we flew her foster sister in from out of state. This video is her response. A special thanks to my father for capturing this special moment on video for us. update 4/13/2013: This video was originally uploaded for family and friends. After a reference was made to this video through reddit, the interest in it absolutely exploded. I have received many questions asking to clarify what is going on in this video. The bouncy blond girl in this video is a girl we first heard about through the http://www.adoptex.org and inquired on her. Once we were matched for adoption, we began the transition process. Since she lived in a different state, we visited her in her foster home. It was there that we met her "foster" sister. After the adoption, our daughter very much missed her foster sister and worried about her. Shortly before Christmas we happened to track her down through facebook and decided to surprise our daughter by flying her foster sister out to visit. This is the video of that reunion. Before her foster sister flew back after Christmas, we talked to her about her plans following being emancipated from foster care. She very much wanted a family and we offered to adopt her as an adult. A month later, the court emancipated her from foster care as we stood next to her in the courtroom. Within minutes of being emancipated, our lawyer filed a petition to legally adopt her as an adult. Thereby making the girls "real sisters" legally. Here is a video of her in our home again a few weeks after she become our daughter. Our oldest son fakes her out on an injury pretty well. He is laughing so hard he can barely talk to explain or defend himself! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=74EDRCixNNs She specifically makes reference being new to the family around a minute and 45 secs. We think it is pretty funny and hope you enjoy it too. Due to inappropriate comments, all comments will now be approved. Sorry to those of you that are well intentioned.
