Not only that — Gina have been adopted!

Her mom posted updated photos of the sweet girl — meanwhile, we all have a restored faith in humanity.


We love this!

Gina’s mom went on to comment about the joyous adoption.

“Since Day 1, I know that God had Gina picked out for us. I was born to be her mother and she was always meant to be my daughter. I know that we lost pregnancy after pregnancy because Gina was waiting on me. We honestly cannot imagine our life without her [...] We hope to always care for foster children. We hope to start building a bigger house next year to house a few more.”
