A caseworker in Florida has given birth to a 19-year-old girl who has spent her whole life in foster care.
Monyay and Leah Peskaledis met six years ago and became fast friends. Monyay’s caseworker was Leah.
Leah couldn’t adopt Monyay until she was out of the foster care system because of her work.
That day has finally arrived.
Leah and Monyay hugged for the first time as mother and daughter after the judge pronounced the adoption final.
“Everything is official, the one thing that I wanted since I was a kid has finally come true,” Monyay told WTEN.
“I made her a promise that I would find her an adoptive family. I just didn’t know that I would be the adoptive family,” said new mom Leah.
This weekend, the couple will celebrate their first Mother’s Day together.Follow Us
