It is heartbreaking to know that some children are not blessed with having a family of their own. Unlike other children, these kids are used to living from one foster home to another, never really having a permanent home to go to.

All of this will change when their most awaited day finally comes: their adoption day.

This moment is an unforgettable occasion where love and family are celebrated. This is why for the past 2 years, the non-profit organization Together We Rise has made it their goal to capture the incredible day when orphans become parts of a family and a home.

Each photo shows the genuine happiness, love, and gratitude every child feels as they finally receive the gift of family. Let’s look at these 15 heartwarming adoption day pictures that will surely leave a smile on your face.
