Boy Finds Out He Will Be A Big Brother The Same Day He Gets Adopted
The day four-year-old Jeremiah Dickerson was officially adopted was an amazing day but it became even more special when he found out he was going to be a big brother too...
Jordan and Cole Dickerson met Jeremiah when he was on a tracheostomy tube in January 2017 in Le Bonheur Children's Hospital in Memphis, where Jordan worked as a nurse.
The couple were able to foster him in 2017, and now a year on they have finally been allowed to legally adopt him.
"The day we've been waiting over a year for!!" Jordan posted on Facebook. "The court system finally caught up to what we already knew to be true...Jeremiah Evans Dickerson is officially ours!
"We have dreamed, waited, and prayed for this day for such a long time. It was even better than I ever dreamed it would be.
"I'm so thankful for our family, friends, and phenomenal support system throughout this entire journey. You all are irreplaceable in our book! Today we celebrate life and so much love for you, sweet boy!"
On the same special day, the new parents announced that Jordan was pregnant with their first biological child together.
"Jeremiah prayed to God in April thanking Him for his baby sister... we thought he was crazy at the time," Jordan continued. "Here we are, 4 months later finding out since then not only that I was pregnant but now that he's also getting his baby sister he prayer for! We are all so thrilled!!"
The adorable family appeared on Good Morning America to talk about their wonderful journey together.
"We fell in love with his smile and his joy," said Jordan of the moment that she first clapped eyes on the adorable Jeremiah. "We just knew he was going to fit in our family. There was no denying it.
"I knew there was something different about him I couldn't get him out of my head. I called my husband and said, 'Pray that we can bring Jeremiah home'.
"It was an emotional day," she said of July 16th, 2018. "In the end, Jeremiah has blessed our family more than we could ever imagined."
We're not crying, you are.
