Brandon, Florida -- It's been a big day for a little girl from Brandon.
You may remember Summer Moll. She's the courageous youngster that was involved in a car accident with a drunk driver that took her mother's life in 2008.
On Monday, Summer was finally going to be adopted by the grandmother, who has cared for her since that time.

There are often smiles whereever Summer Moll goes. She is friendly. She's outgoing. And today she was set to become a Rosian. That's the last name of her grandmother, whose daughter Jennifer was Summer's mother.
Today, leading up to the ceremony, Tammy Rosian said she felt like it was her wedding day. She felt the adrenaline. No appetite. The nervousness of embarking on a lifelong commitment.
One of the first stops today was the Publix store along Highway 60 in Brandon, where they donated a cake with Summer's new name iced on it, "Summer Rosian," some flowers and balloons too.
"I could not give up being a mom to Summer. You know, I would prefer to be the grandma, but that's not in he picture right now," said Tammy.
The trip to Publix was one of a few errands the two spent the day running together leading up to today's long awaited adoption hearing.
There were also matching manicure pedicures, and lunch with friends at one of Summer's favorite barbecue joints. There, Summer talked about why this day is so special.
"'Cause I'm gonna be adopted and I'm gonna have a mom. A mom up in heaven and a mom here," she said.
In September 2008, Jennifer Moll was killed by a drunk driver along the Selmon Expressway near downtown Tampa.
Summer has courageously endured a series of reconstructive surgeries stemming from a head injury she sustained in the same crash.
But after a DUI manslaughter conviction for the driver that killed Jennifer and a legal battle with Summer's estranged father who relinquished his parental rights, the path for adoption was finally cleared.
For Tammy, it completes her family, and provides peace of mind that Summer will always be cared for.
For Summer, no more confusion about what to call the woman - who already loves her like a grandma, cares for her like another -and now shares her name.
"She is just an amazing little girl, and I am honored to be able to adopt her today," said Tammy.
