Many kids who enter the foster care system struggle to feel like they really 'belong' anywhere. For one reason or another, their biological families weren't right for them, and foster carers do their best to make the kids feel welcome and happy, but it doesn't always work out.

Many kids end up moving from one house to another, never staying with one family for too long and never feeling like they're truly 'home'. Fortunately, that wasn't the case for this young girl named Stella.

Stella was recently adopted into the Frazier family after spending over 900 days in foster care. After making the adoption official, Stella's new mom, Erica, went onto Facebook to share the story, along with some truly heartwarming photos.

Here's what she wrote:I couldn’t be a mother the ‘traditional’ way, so I took another path. I met my daughter June 17th, 2015 and instantly fell in love. I became her foster mom that day. On December 5th 2017, 903 days later, we are officially a forever family.They say it takes a village to raise a child and it’s true. I wanted the photos from that day to show our story. It’s so much more than just her and I, it’s about our village too. 903 days later, one less orphan, one more forever family.

My brothers took off work so they could be there on adoption day. They spent my formative years training me on becoming kidnapper resistant, and giving me a wide array of wrestling and sports education. They are happy to have a new protegé to pass their wisdom to.

My nieces love Stella more than I could have ever imagined possible. It is the most precious thing. I can’t think of a day that Stella hasn’t asked when she can play with her cousins. This is going to be one strong cousin bond.

My Aunt and Uncle are on the right. They taught me the meaning of the word spoiled and are quickly teaching Stella. They are so very loved.The pretty lady on the left is Mama Pam. She has known me since I was 5 years old, and has loved and treated me like her own since then. We are so thankful for this precious lady.

My parents were overjoyed to welcome their 6th granddaughter. I don’t know where I would be without these two. The road I chose hasn’t been easy, but they have given nothing but love and support. They gave me the skills and knowledge I needed to be the mom Stella needs. The love they have for Stella is impossible to measure.

This is the day I started to breathe a little easier. The day we were legal. The day I spent 903 other days waiting for. Every single day was worth the wait.

I was asked why I didn’t put the date on the board. To me, December 5th was our finish line cross, but I’ve been her mom since the “OG” date of June 17, 2015. 903 days baby girl, we did it.
