Boy Asks Stepfather to Adopt Him For His Birthday And The Video Is So Moving

Being a parent is super special, but being a stepparent is also—in its own way—special. Not only do you get to be a parent, but you choose to be someone in that child’s life they may not have otherwise. Stepparents always deserve the same kind of love and appreciation as our biological parents, because sometimes, the job is just as hard.

One video online has been going viral on Facebook, being seen over 4 million times, because it’s bringing everyone to tears. 10-year-old Kalani Watson decided to celebrate his birthday by asking his stepfather, Brandon Williamson, to adopt him. Kalani’s mother caught the moment on video, and shared it online.

Kalani asked Brandon to adopt him and provided him with a gift-wrapped stack of adoption papers, too.
