Starbucks drive-thru small talk leads to impromptu adoption party

Burleson, Texas – When the voice on the Starbucks drive-thru intercom asked how their day was going, Brian Roberts decided to answer honestly: after a two-year process, he and his wife Hattie were on their way to adopt their third child.

When they pulled around, store manager Bryttani Moss and two baristas had written messages on their cups and prepared a gift – a bag of coffee.

“They wrote amazing notes on our cups as well as congratulating us and wishing us so much luck and happiness,” Brian wrote on Facebook. “Our world is so stressful right now, and this group of amazing people who were crazy busy took time to show love and kindness!”

Bryttani said she’s so happy her store family could be a part of the Roberts family’s story.

“I’m so thankful we can provide normalcy to people in such an uncertain time,” she said.

P.S. She is home now, and the Roberts family is now five. Brian said his daughters Juliette, 5, and Scarlett, 3, are pretty taken by their new baby sister, Coraline.
