Fatherhood is always an irreplaceable spiritual love. Even if it is not the person who gave birth to the baby, living together for many years can make the bond become cohesive.
The 19-year-old boy in the clip is surprised by his stepfather in his 19th birthday. The touching story was filmed in the US, in which the boy received adoption papers from his stepdad.
"This is your gift, something you've always been asking for," he says. "Adults agreement... to be adopted," the son reads out loud the words in the paper.
"This is the beginning of the process. Sooner or later, it's going to happen," he says. "Someday, soon, you will officially be a Godoy."
The son seems to be very shocked and touched when he read it, then, he burst into tears and rush to hug his stepfather immediately.
Another touching story when the daughter surprises his stepdad with the adoption papers.
They say the best gifts come in small packages. For David Lynde, that gift was simply a pen to sign a stack of paperwork.
Lynde’s stepdaughter, 22-year-old Gabby Guardado, handed Lynde the gift for his 53rd birthday as the family filmed his reaction. Guardado’s biological father hasn’t been a big part of her life since she was 8, but Guardado, who is married to her mother, has, ABC News reports.
“You’ve been my dad. I know legal papers don’t change anything,” Guardado told Lynde as he uncovered the stack of adoption paperwork.
Guardado’s mother, Lori Ann Lynde, posted the video of the surprise on YouTube commenting, “It was the best gift my daughter could have given her step dad!”
Adult adoptions aren’t uncommon when it’s so meaningful to the stepparent. Just last month we wrote about a a teen who asked her stepfather to adopt her at her graduation party.
