Woman Films The Emotional Moment She Asks The Man Who Raised Her To Adopt Her

A young woman has captured the moment she asked the man who raised her to officially become her father, in a heartwarming clip that has swept Facebook and landed her thousands of friend requests.

Misty Nicole Knight, from Richton Park, Illinois, shared the three-and-a-half-minute video, which has been viewed 22 million times and shared by more than 18,000 people in just three days.

After asking a family member to film the exchange, she is seen handing Ryan – who is believed to have been married to Misty’s mother, Nicole – a box wrapped in brightly-coloured paper with a note stuck to it, asking him to read it aloud.

If this video has taught us anything, it’s that family is about much more than just blood. Share this heartwarming adoption story with others if it made you reach for the tissues.
