If you want brutal honesty, as many will agree, ask a child. But, the same goes for sharing emotional truths. 

Kids, in their innocence, have not learned to fear being vulnerable. One little girl from Dallas, Texas, opened up her heart for all the world to see, leaving everyone teary-eyed.

THE THRILL OF FINDING A HOME

Still looking at her mother with love, this pre-schooler then said it was at these ages when she and Lily met her. The little girl said:

"We was very excited to meet you and our daddy. And we love you guys, and we want to be here for you and daddy. [sic]"

The mom responded to the sparkly-eyed baby. She said that she and their father were also delighted to meet her.

A BEAUTIFUL MOMENT

Gaby made sure that her baby sister was included. She asked her mommy if she was excited to meet Lily as well. Of course, she said yes. But, nothing could prepare the internet for what the little girl said next:

"Well, do you know what happened to my heart? What happened...Well, when the first time I told you when I saw you, my heart fell in love with you."

Gaby's story touched the mom, but this statement specifically moved her. The mother said she felt the same way with a profoundly affectionate tone in her voice. She then lightly brushed a piece of hair off Gaby's face. Gaby kept looking up at her mom with love in her glowing eyes.

It took Dale Kiefer-Perrault just over three decades to find his true place of belonging. Before this happened, as a ward of the state, he had lived in 24 homes. 

He

was subject to abuse by those who were meant to care for him

. Michelle and Steve in Fairfield welcomed him into their home at one point. 

He told the duo his story, and they were so touched that they eventually decided to and managed to adopt him. 

Now, although 33 years too late, like Gaby, Kiefer-Perrault has a family and a place to call home. Most importantly, he can now feel safe and loved -- Something every human being deserves.
