Dezhianna told BuzzFeed News that Michael first joined their family in February 2015, when he was very shy and cried a lot.

She said they were Michael's third foster family, and his case plan changed from reuniting him with his mom to severance and adoption.

She said they were Michael's third foster family, and his case plan changed from reuniting him with his mom to severance and adoption.

“His last name was already Brown so we knew it was meant to be,” she said.

"He’s a lot more outgoing now and you can now see the personality in him," she said. “Now when he sleeps with me, he’ll roll over in the morning and get super close to my face and say, ‘Dae, I so happy.'"

“Now when he sleeps with me, he’ll roll over in the morning and get super close to my face and say, ‘Dae, I so happy.'"

“He was so excited on the day,” Dezhianna said. “I don’t think he truly understood what being adopted meant. He just knew he was being adopted.”

Officially adopted💙 We love you Michael.

The Browns will be spending their second Christmas together this year.

Their photos had a lot of people crying.

And aww-ing.

Some people actually thought Dezhianna and her sister were a couple.

So they uploaded a photo to prove they were sisters.

Which led to people pointing out Michael's resemblance to his new family.

"Honestly I didn't expect for so many people to see my post," Dezhianna said, adding that she's gotten nothing but positive comments.

"It's amazing how many people share the same experiences with my family," she said.
