You Won't Be Able To Stop Crying Over Video Of Teen Asking Stepdad To Adopt Her

By

WHAT. I'm not crying. It's just so dusty in here, ya know?

Today's dose of emosh comes from Gabriella Lynde, who surprised her stepfather with adoption papers on his birthday.

The whole thing was caught on video and posted on YouTube by her mom Lori Ann Lynde.

It shows Gabriella's stepdad rummaging through a birthday bag when he pulls out a load of papers. He freezes and says,

Adult adoption? What the hell is this? Am I adopting you?

To which Gabriella replies,

I want you to. You don't have to, you can say 'no,' but I want you to adopt me. You've been my dad, I know legal papers don't change anything but I appreciate --

Her speech is cut off by his big yelps of emotion. When he finally gets it together, he says,

Wow, Gabby. You have no idea. I'm sorry, guys, I don't cry much. This is right up there with the moment Scott was born. Gabby, you have no idea what that means to me.
