A man in Oregon was brought to tears on his birthday after his stepdaughter gave him the gift of taking his last name.

Giselle Santoyo shared video of the moment on Twitter on Nov. 8. “My greatest gift in life is you being my dad. Our goal was for you to adopt me before I turned 18, but it was too late. Here I am with your gift, I changed my last name for you. I love you forever, happy birthday❤ I am legally Giselle Marie Santoyo,” she tweeted.

Santoyo’s dad can be seen opening the gift and looking at what appears to be a frame, before breaking down in tears.
