4. "Three years ago today we foster 'failed'! Iris was part of our second litter of fosters ever. Her siblings, Barry Allen, Cisco, and Caitlin were adopted before her.

7. "And … we are officially foster fails (if you couldn’t already tell! 😁)! Happy Adoption Day Jax!! Welcome to your furever home! 🏡💖

You stole our hearts with your sweet & gentle personality, intelligence, exuberance for life, goofiness & loving nature even after everything you've been through. We knew no one else could love you as much as we do, so you're stuck with us! 🥰

We promise you'll never have to fear people, go hungry, nor be chained up in the heat & rain ☔️ again. You'll always have plenty of toys (especially bones 🦴 ), car rides 🚙 & adventures, a sunny spot to sunbathe 😎 (& cool tiles & a/c when you've had enough), a cosy bed (though you prefer to sleep on the couch! 🤦🏻‍♀️), cuddles & lots & lots of yummy treats! 🥭🍓🍌🥓🍖"
