Stepfather raised little daughter with love and care, 16 years later she gave him a special present that left them both in tears

Birthdays – The only day when one is actually treated as a “VIP,” while opening gifts is the most exciting task of this celebrity. Check out this father’s precious birthday journey, who got the most awaited gift of his life – Adoption papers for his daughter!

 Jay Pages’ family perfectly knew how to make his birthday truly a magical one and the day he would never forget.

In a simple birthday celebration, Jay is surrounded by his loving family as he opens one gift after another. He makes casual small-talk while waiting to receive his next gift, mentioning wanting to go to a hypnotist but postponing it due to his daughter’s graduation.

Little did he know, he had inadvertently guessed what the gift would be. He is presented with a white rectangular box adorned with a silver bow.

He reads his card, which might have contained a generic message of warm greetings and best wishes. It certainly did not give away the surprise.

As he opens it, he puts aside colorful tissue paper only to find a closed manila envelope. His face is both intrigued and confused.

And then it happens!!!

As Jay pulls out the mysterious paper inside the closed manila envelope… he immediately bursts into tears.

This large, tough-looking man suddenly sob uncontrollably, upon receiving hisdaughter’s adoption papers.

For Jay’s birthday, he received signed adoption papers for his daughter, all completed and only needing his signature. According to his wife, with his signature, they were ready to file that Monday. And to Jay, that meant the world to him.

The rigorous process of adoption is frequently overlooked. Not only can it get expensive with the courts and lawyer fees, but it takes time, months to possibly years.

The act of adopting demonstrates true dedication and determination of adoptive parents. They are not only taking in and loving a child as their own, but they are also willing to go through a strenuous process just to have the formal privilege of calling their child legally theirs.

But as the video proves, this effort is all worth it. And when you finally see light at the end of the adoption-tunnel. It can make even the strongest of men break down in tears.

So overwhelmed is he with emotions, Jay just can’t stop holding his daughter again and again. His actions show what words cannot truly express.

Later in the video, as he calms down and takes his seat, he tells his family, “Two things that always cross my mind are your adoption and getting married.”

Now, Jay is one step closer to completing his list. Congratulations!
