Toddlers Sweet Reaction To Finding Out Mom Was Adopted

A family's security camera has captured the wholesome moment a three-year-old girl comforted her mom when she found out her mother was adopted. In the sweet footage, Ella Fauver, aged three, can be seen chatting to her mom, Emily, 30, in their Warrensburg, Missouri, home, when Ella asks Emily who her mom is. At that point, Emily breaks the news to her daughter that she was adopted, explaining, "because my mommy didn't want me." Ella, noticing the sadness in her mom's voice, replies, "Aww," before affirming, "I want you." The response overwhelmed Emily, who then got down to her daughter's level and gave her a big hug. According to Emily, she was taken from her biological parents when she was one and a half years old because her parents struggled with addiction. After being placed in three different foster homes, Emily was then adopted at the age of eight. She knew that one day she would have to explain her family dynamic to her daughter, but Emily did not expect that moment to come when Ella was so young – or with such a loving response.
