Video: Girl Asks to be Adopted

Shout out to Misty Nicole Knight from Richton Park, Illinois for making me, along with millions of other people cry. On March 6th, Misty posted a video on Facebook where she asked the man, Ryan, who raised her to officially become her father. The three-and-a-half-minute video has been viewed 22 million times and shared by more than 18,000 people in just three days.

The video, a total tear-jerker by the way, captures Misty handing Ryan a box wrapped in brightly-colored paper with a note stuck to it and asking him to read it aloud. The letter begins with, ‘I just want you to know that you’re the most amazing man I have ever met.’ Even Ryan was having a hard time not choking up here. The letter then continues to describe the awesome relationship the two have, which gives all the men out there serious #DadGoals. The box has two presents for Ryan: a Batman vs. Superman onesie (he should totally wear it to the premier) and drum roll please…an application for adoption! Ugh, thank goodness for waterproof mascara!

Witness the memorable moment below, but have tissues handy. Congrats Ryan and Misty!
