Adoption stories are often heartwarming and the same can be said about this one you’ll read below. In this YouTube footage, we see a young girl named Hailey getting the best birthday present ever – and it’s totally making the internet cry!
“Why am I the center of attention?” asks Hailey while celebrating her birthday in an outdoor setting. Brigitte, her step mother, later got down on her knees and presented several gifts.
Brigitte gave Hailey some baloons, a stuffed animal, and a necklace.
The said necklace reads:
“My daughter holds my heart.”
As can be seen on the clip, the appreciative youngster began to be a little emotional because of the sweet presents.
Unknown to Hailey, a life-changing moment awaited her shortly thereafter.
Brigitte then handed the birthday celebrant a piece of paper which, it turns out, is a document that will change their lives forever.
As she shared on the YouTube video’s description:
“Today we surprised my Step Daughter with a adoption party to give her her the adoption papers.
“We had been pursuing the court system for 5 years to gain permanent custody after a long journey I filed for adoption and one year later it was approved. The Judge put in capital letters that it was in Haley’s best interest to be adopted by me her Step Mom or like she called me Super Mom.
“This is the second time I have been blessed with a adoption I am a Mother of two amazing girls and couldn’t be prouder of them both.”
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the clip has since immediately went viral on social media, gaining a lot of love and attention not only from netizens but from various news sources.

She believes that reaching the summit made her more visible to her dad.
A 7-year old Texan child now holds the record of being the youngest girl to have reached the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro.
