What She Handed To Her Stepdad On Christmas Made Him Totally Lose It

Stephen Dabney has raised Makayla since she was five years old, but she wanted to surprise him by legally taking his name and parentage.

There are some families we’re born into and some we create ourselves.

When Stephen Dabney entered his stepdaughter Makayla’s life, she was just five years old and her biological father was out of the picture. For Christmas this year, Makayla decided to surprise Stephen with a gift he will never forget.

She wrote, “When you met my mom… you took me in as your own child. Obviously there have been rough patches,” but she added, “I love you more than anything.”

As he opens the adoption papers, she says, “I’ll have your last name until someone takes mine.” No, YOU’RE crying.

Congratulations to this dad and daughter who show what it truly means to love each other.
