This boy’s definition of family will warm your heart.

A Michigan kindergartner brought his entire class to witness his adoption hearing Thursday in an adorable courtroom scene marking Kent County’s annual Adoption Day.ADVERTISEMENT

The county’s official Facebook page posted a photo of the young boy, Michael Clark Jr., sitting next to his foster parents as his classmates watched in the back with paper hearts in their hands.

Michael — who was formally adopted by foster parents Andrea Melvin and Dave Eaton — was one of 37 children being adopted Thursday in Grand Rapids.

“There is not a dry eye on Judge Patricia Gardner’s courtroom,” Kent County officials wrote in a separate Facebook post.

The hearings were a formal procedure to finalize their adoptions. The court gave each family a 30-minute hearing to celebrate the end of the process, local ABC affiliate WHAS reported.

Court Appointed Special Advocates of Kent County, one of the sponsors of Adoption Day, congratulated the boy with its own social media post.

“It’s adoption day at the courthouse — the BEST day of the year!” the nonprofit wrote. “Congratulations to Michael and his family . . . so cool that his entire class came to support him!”
