Set to Stay With Me by Sam Smith, the video began with Jenelle in the courthouse as she was told to sign “right there” on the custody papers.
She then added subtitles to show her explanation about her mother, Barbara, 69, and how she felt about the massive change: “She’s completely fine, she’s like ‘I’m ready to have my freedom.’
“I’m ready to go on a cruise and her and her friend have a cruise already planned.”
The video then moved to Jenelle sitting in her car after the papers were signed, as she cried tears of happiness.
She held the papers to the camera, and emotionally shared: “It’s done, it’s done.”
The 31-year-old then broke down completely, and removed her glasses as she cried.
Ending the clip, Jenelle added a photo of herself and Jace smiling happily at the camera.
She captioned the moving post: “IT’S OFFICIAL! Thank you everyone for the support,” adding a sparkle and heart emoji.
“Words can’t describe how happy I truly am. Our family is complete now! Thank you mom,” she concluded.
LOVE AND SUPPORT
Many of Jenelle’s fans were quick to share their heartfelt congratulations after having followed her journey for many years.
One person said: “For those of us who watched your younger self up to the woman you are now, you go girl. MUCH LOVE!”
“Congratulations. I remember watching you when I was so little. So happy for you and your family,” added another.
A third fan exclaimed: “We were ALWAYS ROOTING FOR YOU!!”
Another emotional comment read: “I’m crying with you girl, you’ve grown so much, love you!”
“You never gave up on getting him back & that shows how truly dedicated you were. I’m so proud of you!” praised another message.
LONG TIME COMING
Jenelle’s custody win of her 13-year-old son came a decade after Barbara was awarded full custody of him.
She exclusively told Us Weekly on Saturday: “My mom and I decided together to grant full custody back to me because we want to build our relationship back as mother and daughter.”
“Also, my mother agrees it’s time for Jace to be back with his siblings and living with a mother and father.”
Jenelle shares Jace with her ex, Andrew Lewis.
Jace will live with his mom and her current husband, David Eason, 34.
She is also the mother to her son Kaiser, eight, whom she shares with her ex, Nathan Griffith.
Her daughter, Ensley, six, is the only child she shares with David, whom she married in 2017.
