AN INCREDIBLE teacher has revealed how she adopted one of her students this year, after fostering him when she was just 24-years-old.
Paige Bramlett, who lives in Indiana, shared her journey of adopting her son on her TikTok account, paigebram, where her video has been viewed almost one million times.
In one video, Paige reveals how she met her son when she was 24-years-old, working as a behaviour specialist in a Kindergarten.
She began working with a young boy, who is now her son.
She said that whilst helping him through school, he was in foster care and he exhibited signs of PTSD and trauma after being moved to several different homes in four years.
She said: "One day he didn't turn up for school and he had never missed a day.
"I ran into his caseworker collecting his things in the hallway.
"She told me they were looking for a forever home for him to be placed in.

"Now he is adopted. Loved. Chosen. My son We are learning together every day."
Paige and her son have been inundated with love and support on TikTok but she revealed that was not the reaction she received when she first told people about her plan.
She described when she was 24-years-old and first told people she had decided to foster her student and implies that everybody thought she was insane for doing it.
But now, things couldn't be better for the duo who are looking forward to celebrating their first Christmas as a family together with their new dog, Banks.
Paige was able to formally adopt her son earlier this year and has seen a huge improvement in his mood and mental health since having a safe and secure place to stay.
