DALLAS, Texas (WJW) -- A little boy found his forever family in Texas after spending 1,553 days in foster care.

Buckner International said 8-year-old Nike was adopted on Monday.

More than 300 people were there to witness Nike's absolute joy including his second-grade classmates, teachers and church members; even Nike's superhero, Batman, was there.

Buckner International said the Dallas Cowboys heard about his adoption day and sent him a gift basket.

"I've been waiting four years for this day!" Nike said.
