GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (KAKE) -

A young Michigan boy had the best kind of moral support at his adoption hearing this week: his entire kindergarten class.

ABC affiliate WZZM reported Michael was cheered on by his classmates as he joined his new family Thursday at a courthouse in Kent County, Michigan.

Michael's class waved paper hearts in the air while they sat in the courthouse. They also posed for photographs with Michael and the judge.

Michael was one of 36 children who were adopted Thursday, the county's 23rd annual Adoption Day, according to WZZM.

Santa Claus even showed up to spend time with each family, and several other agencies and organizations were also on hand to support them.
