This Boy Asking His Stepdad To Adopt Him For His Birthday Will Make You Cry

By Jaime Lutz

Families are a big deal. Everyone wants to feel like they have that support group to fall back on. Maybe that's why everyone loves a good sappy story about one.

Want to have a happy cry instead of a sad cry today? You can't do any better than watching this video of Los Angeles kid Kalani Watson asking his longtime stepfather Brandon Williamson to adopt him for his birthday. Even the stepdad is bawling by the end of it.

Watson had long called Williamson "dad," his mom Porsche Williamson told KTLA, a local news outlet; after all, the married couple had started a relationship when Williamson was just a baby. But in this video, Watson calls upon his stepdad to “stop playing and make it official." And Williamson then opens a box that Watson gave him. Guess what's inside?
