Clearly, Ryan Farrell is a fun, happy man who is filled with love. So much love, in fact, that he raised a daughter who is not biologically his own. On this special day of gift-giving, Misty Knight gives him the gift of a lifetime—the petition of adoption. At her request, Ryan Farrell will officially become Misty’s dad.

Misty knows how to do it right—she presented Ryan with a letter taped to the outside of his present. The letter thanked him for the many ways he has been a real dad to her. Misty’s anxious observance as her dad opens his present is precious. She can’t wait for him to get to the best part . . . and when he does, the two tearfully embrace.

Watch the heart-warming moment here.
