Once upon a time, in a faraway land known as Grand Rapids, Michigan, there lived a 5-year-old foster child named Danielle, who loved princesses. After spending a couple years with the Konings, all Danielle wanted was a family to call her own. When Danielle's adoption became official, a fairy godmother known as her caseworker made sure this little girl had a magical, Disney-inspired adoption day with her forever family.

Thanks to the kindness of court employees -- including an awesome judge, who had no problems adding a Snow White bow to her robe -- this beautiful girl got the fairy-tale ending she always wanted.

Just look how happy Danielle is as a princess among her favorite Disney characters.

I can only imagine the emotions a child feels going through the system and being placed with a foster family. (Sometimes it works out, and sometimes it doesn't.) That's what makes this story so special, because Danielle has shared two great years with the Konings and officially gets to join the family. While their journey together has just started, their household is now complete -- making this happy ending all the sweeter.

Sarah Koning, Danielle's mom, spoke to ABC News about the importance of making adoption day memorable:

I think it's really important to make that adoption day special for every kid in whatever capacity you can. No matter what, if kids have been bounced around a lot, it really helps them to feel the permanency and know that they're not going anywhere now. It's really important for kids to feel that security.

The judge and court employees who dressed up as Disney characters likely have no idea just how much they made Danielle's adoption day special. It's beautiful and selfless acts like this that make going the extra mile such a life-changing experience.

Danielle, you are a sweet princess who has so many people who love you. Hopefully your story will inspire others to not only make adoption day for others special, but also to consider the possibility of becoming a foster parent, so they can give wonderful kids like you the happily ever after you deserve.
