Foster Kids Learn They’re Being Adopted From Mickey Mouse

“It was their first time ever at Disney and so we booked tickets to Magic Kingdom, and the more I thought about it, the more I thought ‘how cool would it be for Mickey to hold up a sign telling the kids?'” Gilmour said. Just when he’s about to take a photo with the pair, a sign is presented to them with their official adoption date.Foster parents Tom and Courtney Gilmour took the help of the mouse to announce the happy news to their children. “We were planning a trip to the Star Wars Celebration”.When the family checked into the park, they were handed buttons to write down what they were there to celebrate.Disney arranged a special meet-and-greet with Mickey Mouse after Courtney tweeted her plans to surprise the kids. “Ours said, ‘Adopting Our Kids.’ Theirs said, ‘Getting Adopted.’ The people from Disney World’s Twitter reached out to us and asked, ‘How can we help make this extra special?'” She had no clue how special the moment would be: “I thought it meant we were getting a dessert!” “He could show it to the kids and we would let them know their adoption date that way”, as per CBS News. Tom and Courtney were going to adopt the siblings but hadn’t told them yet.After posing for photographs with Mickey Mouse, the brother and sister were shocked when it was revealed that a court date had been set for their adoption after a long wait. At one point, Courtney tells Elijah “Didn’t I tell you it was going to be magic?””I wasn’t expecting them to have that reaction”.”It feels awesome”, Janielle added. After performing card tricks to amuse the kids, a sign was brought out that said “May 24″ – the date the kids were officially going to be adopted.Since it was posted, the video has been viewed more than 1.6 million times, and Courtney hopes that at least some of its viewers might become inspired to get involved in foster care.Disney is the parent company of ABC News.
