On April 30th, Porsche Williamson posted a video to her Facebook page showing her son, Kalani Watson, asking her husband, Brandon Williamson, for “a huge favor.” The little boy held up a piece of paper containing a handwritten speech he wrote with his heart on his sleeve. As his 10th birthday party takes place around them, he earnestly asks his stepdad to adopt him. It’s clear that Brandon is trying to keep it together, but once the boy asks him such an important question and his wife hands him a gift box with adoption papers, he can’t hold in his emotions any longer.

Porsche writes that she uploaded the video so she could share the moment with friends and family who couldn’t attend the party. Little did she know the video would be shared all over the world and even translated into different languages! She spoke with the Huffington Post about the beautiful day. “We all just cried. I knew this was going to break [Brandon] down. Like the time my son asked if he could call him dad he was four. He has so much love for Brandon and he was so nervous once the day was here. He kept going over it the day before,” she said.
