This is the tear-jerking way a child asked his ‘dad’ to officially adopt him.
Having prepared a heart-wrenching speech, Tyler, 11, surprised his dad when he asked him to adopt him.
Despite believing at first that someone in his family was having a baby – due to the choice of ‘it’s a boy’ bag – father Don, 47, tearfully accepted his son’s request.
Before quickly putting his guard back up, and moaning “Y’all wrong for this sh*t, I’m gone kill you.”
The video was captured by multiple family members, as Don begrudgingly points out in the video.
Tyler’s biological mother, Marcia Gause, who was in on the act, said: “Tyler was one and a half when Don came into his life, they have always had the relationship of father and son.
“Don had no idea what was going on – we wanted to do it as if it was a baby shower because he always says I wish I could have been there when you had my son.
“I asked Tyler about a year ago if he wanted to be adopted by Don and he was so excited he said yes with the biggest smile ever.
“He is very wise for such a young person and has said before that God sent him the Daddy that was really meant for him.
“Don was so overwhelmed by what Tyler said to him, he was crying, Tyler was crying and it’s hard to tell, but we were all crying through the laughs too.”
