Princesses Suprise 5-Year-Old Girl on her Adoption Day

By Evonne Ermey

After a long and tedious adoption process, a 5-year-old Michigan girl was welcomed into her new forever-family in the most magical way — By a courtroom full of Disney princesses, and Prince Charming, of course.

Danielle had no idea that her adoption day would draw such a regal crowd. It was the quiet coordination of¬†parents and caseworkers, who came dressed as princesses (and prince), that turned Danielle’s adoption hearing into a royal ball.

Even the judge wore a princess gown under her court robes.

New parents, Jim and Sarah Koning had been fostering Danielle for more than a year. Before that time, Danielle had “bounced around between family members,” Today reports.

When the Danielle’s parents lost custody rights and the Koning’s filed for adoption, other parties filed as well, resulting in a time consuming contested adoption process.

When the adoption was finally realized, foster care worker Kristina Grey concocted the idea of a surprise, fairy tale themed adoption hearing, Today reports.

Grey recruited a fellow, blonde caseworker to dress up as Cinderella. Word spread throughout the officeicon1 Princesses Suprise 5 Year Old Girl on her Adoption Day, culminating in a magical new beginning for Danielle.

We hope she has the best and most loved life with her new family!
