Stepmom Arrives At Little Girl's Birthday Party, Gives Gift That Sends Family Reeling

Being from a blended home can be difficult for both the child and the stepparent. While the stepparent wants to be an active part of the child's life, there are some constrictions and cultural hurdles that they have to handle.

For the child, having someone who isn't their natural-born parent boss them around is off-putting and, oftentimes, a source of tension. Fortunately, that couldn't be further from the truth for this young girl and her stepmother...

According to the Stepfamily Foundation, there are more than 1,300 new stepfamilies forming every day. This staggering number is due to the large portion of the population that has remarried.

The site explains that more than 50 percent of the population has done this! The girl's father in this video is no different. For whatever reason, he and the girl's mother are no longer together and he was able to find love again with another woman! Thankfully, they all get along fabulously and life couldn't be better!

So it was a lovely family affair for this little girl's birthday. As the girl opens up each present on her birthday, a wave of joy washes over her.

Then her stepmother presents her with a gift bag. Little does the girl know that her stepmother had a huge surprise planned for her birthday, one that will change her life forever.

The girl opens the bag to find a legal document sitting inside - how odd! She carefully retrieves the paper and reads it aloud slowly. The big words were a bit confusing, but eventually, it all makes sense.

As she nears the end of the document, it hits her! She's being adopted by her stepmother! This was a dream come true and the perfect birthday present.

Tears fall from her eyes and her stepmother runs in for a big hug! Take a peek at this emotional moment for yourself in the video below!
