Step parenting is a very complicated thing. There are real horror stories where people do things that are unimaginable. But there are so many instances that it really turns out to be great for everyone involved. There are times where relationships just don't work, and divorce is just the best course of action. Of course its best to figure it out before kids are involved but if it has to happen that there are step-parents, it is always great when those people take the responsibility seriously and really step up and play a large role in the kids life.
Twitter user @theejasminee posted a video of her stepdad reading a letter she wrote to him on Father's Day. In it, she says all of the ways he's been there for her when her biological father wasn't, and thanks him for choosing her mom because her mom is "a hottie."
The letter itself is adorable, and her stepdad obviously loves it, though he makes a series of classic dad jokes throughout. The whole thing is a lead up to a gift, and when she asks him if he can guess what it is, he quips, "Money?"
No, the surprise is adoption papers. She wants her stepdad to be her legal father. As soon as he sees the packet containing the documents, he loses it. Watching them embrace as he cries will make your face melt off, as you can see from the responses below:
Stories about adoption are probably my favorite thing on the Internet. Love is out there, and we choose our families in all sorts of beautiful ways. Being a parent to a kid is a huge responsibility and very hard, so if your kid chooses you when they don't have to, you know you've done an amazing job.
