Heartwarming moment father cries after his daughter gifts him with adoption papers on his birthday

An Arizona father got a heartwarming birthday surprise from his daughter when she gave him adoption papers saying that he always took care of her and her sister and she wanted to make their family official. 

In a touching video posted on Twitter by Brianna Colwell, John Boden is seen opening a box to find a stack of papers inside.

He quickly flips through the papers, not really looking at them, saying that he’ll ‘have to read this later’.

Once Boden realized they were adoption papers he got emotional and started crying

A woman tells him he needs to read it now and instructs him to flip the first page over. 

After studying the page for a minute, Boden realizes they are adoption papers. 

‘Are you f***ing kidding me,’ he responds, getting emotional. 

Brianna Colwell said Boden has always taken care of her and her older sister so she 'made it official'

As he flips through the document, he starts to cry.

Several people in the room tell the emotional dad ‘congratulations’. One woman off-camera says everything is filled out and they just have to set up a date. 

‘I love you baby,’ he says, presumably to his daughter, jokingly adding: ‘You’re an a**hole.’

Colwell told Storyful that Boden has raised her and her older sister since she as a baby. 

‘I have always treated him like my real father and will always see him that way. So we made it official in the eyes of the state,’ she said. 

The video has been more than 3,000 times and was flooded with comments from social media users saying congratulations to the family.
