A touching footage is making rounds on the internet which has left the users from across the globe speechless.
The footage shows a young girl presenting her father with a Father’s Day gift.
It was not any simple present but something that made her father go into an emotional state with tears jerking from his eyes.
13-year-old Alexa Figueroa can be seen asking her stepfather to adopt her with a delightful photo album message. The video shows Alexa fidgeting excitedly while her stepfather Gus Roman flicks through the Father’s Day Gift.
When Gus reaches the last photo, he is overwhelmed with emotion because he sees a picture of Alexa holding a sign asking him if he wants to adopt her.
The sign reads Alexa telling her dad that it has been over a decade now, what are his thoughts on adopting her.
With tears in his eyes, Alexa gives him a tight hug and then laughs off. Responding to Alexa’s thoughtful gift, Gus tells her that of course, he wants to adopt her.
Gus has looked after Alexa since she was two. He biological father died a week before Alexa’s first birthday. Alexa’s mother, Mia, remarried to Gus and they have a son together named Noah, 7.
It was Noah who asked that is her half-sister is going to change her last name so that they all could be the Romans.
But their mother suggested that she should hyphenate her last name to Figueroa-Roman so that she could keep a little piece of her biological father with her.
Gus has loved Alexa all his life and always wanted to adopt her but waited to give Alexa the choice of wanting to be adopted.
Gus begins to cry when he learns that Alexa wants him to be her adoptive father.
