Being a parent is a unique experience. Most couples get to a point in their relationship where they are ready to take this next step together. However, a lot of couples struggle to conceive naturally and must look towards other solutions to starting their family. Adoption is one such option that many couples consider. But, even with adoption, things often go awry. Tyler and Mandi Palmer are familiar with the difficulties encountered when choosing to adopt. After they made the choice to adopt a baby, they were met with their fair share of hurdles along the road. When the time finally came for their court hearing, their toddler decided to pipe in and give his opinion on the whole matter. After he expressed himself, it was clear to everyone sitting in the room that Hunter was destined to be with that couple. It was an emotional day and one that the couple will never forget.
Every family experiences good days and bad ones. They also experience those moments that change their lives completely, for the better and for the devastatingly worse. For Tyler and Mandi of Perrsyburg, Ohio, that exact day had come. As they sat in the courtroom waiting to hear the decision that would dramatically change their lives, they were extremely nervous. The day would show them what genuine love really means.
This was a very emotional experience for Mandi and Tyler, an experience that adoptive parents and birth parents alike could relate to. The court hearing came after a long period of time during which Mandi and Tyler spent trying to prove themselves worthy as parents and keep their family unit in tact.
It seemed like it would take ages for the judge to speak and make a decision. However, most people sitting in that room would not have expected the toddler to be the one to break the silence. You might even shed a tear when you hear what he said.
