A woman’s narration of how she was adopted as a baby has netizens emotional after it went viral on social media.
Taylor Shennett is a Chinese-born who was adopted into an American family. In a video, Shennett recounted her experience of adoption. The clip, which is from August 11, 1997, features her father coming out of the airport with the little baby and hugging his wife as she dotes on the baby.
According to the video, Shennet’s parents always wanted to adopt. However, when they were told they couldn’t have children, they moved their timeline for it up. They chose to adopt from China and her dad flew halfway across the world to pick her up. “My adoption journey hasn’t always been easy, but I am thankful for a family that loves me and supports me,” Shennet says in the video.
Take a look at the heartwarming clip below:
