The letter reads: "I know your birthday is 13 days away but I am too excited to hold it in... "What do you get a man that never wants? I can sit and ponder all day but in the end I know nothing would make you happier than what I am about to say... "Today 2/1/2018 will be a day we will cherish forever as we grow old. HaLeigh Danielle Abila is now HALEIGH DANIELLE TREVINO! "Happy Birthday and Valentines Day. You stole her heart from day one, but she stole your last name forever."
