18-year-old Pamela Lara from Houston, Texas shared an emotional letter of her 17-year-old half-brother, Jared Escamilla, leaving Twitter users in tears.
Her loving brother also presented her with some of her favorite snacks.
The letter read:
“I just wanted to let you know how much I love you. I don’t care what people say you are always going to be my full-blooded sister, you are the best thing that happened to me.
I love you with all my heart, thank you for helping me on my worst and thank you for leading me the right way.
I will always be there for you, just like you have always been there for me. I love you, with love, your annoying brother.”
The tweet immediately received 60,000 likes and retweets. It also garnered hundreds of supportive comments.
It wasn’t mentioned how the brother discovered that they weren’t full siblings, but what’s important is how he tried to cope with the truth.
Pam told Femail: “My brother knew I wasn’t ready to talk about us not being full siblings, so he wrote it instead.
Instead of breaking us apart, it made us even closer. He even tells me he feels bad for joking around that I was the adopted one in the family because I was different than everyone else.
But despite all of that, I believe blood does not define family. And I have never seen him any differently.”
Many Twitter users replied to Pam’s tweet with gifs of random people and celebrities, including Naomi Campbell, crying, as they tried to hold back their tears.
One follower even joked: “My eyes are sweating!”
“I’m not crying, you are,” one commented.
“That’s beautiful. My blood brother ain’t even that nice to me,” said another.
One follower also shared her own experience: “When my little sister found out our dad isn’t my biological dad she was so upset for me. She cried and held me like she was gonna shield me from it.”
Another one shared: “When my sister realized we didn’t have the same dad she told me I could share hers and she was gonna tell him to adopt me.”
