The latest viral photo to take over the internet features a three-year-old Arizona boy happily celebrating his adoption.

This heartwarming story features a local family and their newest addition. Dezhianna “Dae” Brown posted photos of her adoptive brother Michael after the finalization of his adoption. He is now living with his forever family in Peoria.

Brown’s Twitter post featured three photos of her adoptive brother, and now have reached over 57,000 retweets and 143,000 likes.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
