But the ruling is probably not the last turn in the story, as the Fort Worth Independent School District said that it believed her firing was appropriate and that it would appeal the state’s ruling. “We stand by our decision because we firmly believe this is in the best interests of all students,” Kent P. Scribner, the superintendent of the school district, said in a statement this week.

Michael was one of nearly 40 kids to be legally adopted on Adoption Day at the Kent County court house on Thursday, but he was the only one with rows of his classmates behind him. It was Michael's teacher, Kerry McKee, who first floated the idea of bringing the entire class to his adoption hearing. "We began the school year as a family," McKee told a local ABC News affiliate. "Family doesn't have to be DNA, because family is support and love."
But it was, of course, Michael's choice to invite his entire class. "We asked him and he said, 'You know, the class is kind of my family,'" Eaton told the local NBC News affiliate. "He wanted them to be there.'"
Eaton also told CNN that the judge—who had never hosted a kindergarten class in her courtroom before—asked Michael's classmates to explain what Michael means to them, and they got up and said things like "I love Michael" or "Michael's my best friend."
