JOLIET, Ill. -- A video of a young woman asking the man who raised her to officially become her adoptive father has been viewed more than 31 million times on Facebook.
The three-and-a-half-minute video was posted on Misty Nicole Knight’s Facebook page on March 5 with a message saying, "So everyone has been waiting for this but I finally asked the man that raised me to adopt me ❤ love you with all my heart and can't wait to be a FARRELL 😊 Ryan Farrell"
The video begins with Misty handing him a gift, with the instructions to read the note out loud.
“You’ve raised me my whole life, from putting my hair in tight Princess Leia buns, forging my signature in fifth grade, jamming out to alternative music, going on Warped Tour and even our first rock concert together, leading up to us laughing at cats wearing leggings. I know we are so weird together, but that’s what makes you you, and I cannot imagine not having you in my life. I’m so grateful to be able to call you Dad.”
When he opens the box, there are several presents inside, and he shows excitement for each, but when he gets to the real present he can't hold back his emotions.
