Four-year-old Jeremiah is a bundle of charismatic energy.
Despite growing up in the foster care system, the little boy’s smile is completely infectious.
In January 2017, Jeremiah was a patient Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis. A medical condition meant he had to be fitted with a tracheostomy tube. All the while, the brave boy took it in his stride. He instantly became Jordan Dickerson, a pediatric nurse, favorite patient.
Jordan told her husband about Jeremiah and the pair began foster care training in hopes of looking after him. Last month a judge granted the Tennessee couple wish and was formerly adopted by them.
The new family proudly took a set of heartwarming pictures outside their local courthouse after the adoption papers were signed. In a photoshoot taken the same day, the family told the world formed that Jeremiah would be becoming a big brother.
‘Jeremiah Evans Dickerson’
Jordan told her Facebook friends: ‘The day we’ve been waiting over a year for!! The court system finally caught up to what we already knew to be true…Jeremiah Evans Dickerson is officially ours!’
‘We have dreamed, waited, and prayed for this day for such a long time. It was even better than I ever dreamed it would be.’
‘I’m so thankful for our family, friends, and phenomenal support system throughout this entire journey. You all are irreplaceable in our book! Today we celebrate life and so much love for you, sweet boy!’
A sign in front of him also reads: ‘Today I became a Dickerson. Up next… big brother.’
The story quickly picked up traction with over thousands of shares.
They Announced The Gender
Jordan is certainly enjoying his new life, with his new parents sharing his special moments on Facebook. One video captures Jeremiah showing off his singing talents as he rocks out to ‘Uptown Funk’ by Bruno Mars.
And just last Thursday, Jordan announced the gender of her baby.
‘Jeremiah prayed to God in April thanking Him for his baby sister… we thought he was crazy at the time.’
‘Here we are, 4 months later finding out since then not only that I was pregnant but now that he’s also getting his baby sister he prayer for! We are all so thrilled!!,’ she wrote happily.
