‘You have no idea what that means to me!
This is a special moment in time when a young woman leaves her beloved stepfather in tears.
The tears are not of sorrow, but of joy. She has just asked him to legally adopt her as part of a birthday surprise to him.
Gabriella Guardado, who is 22, placed her adoption papers inside a gift bag, ready to be opened by her stepfather, David Lynde.
In the video, David is seen opening the bag and pulling out the papers while surrounded by his family.
Once he realizes what the papers mean, emotions suddenly are off the charts!
