Girl Asks Stepdad To Adopt Her During Quinceañera Toast

A girl surprised her stepfather during her quinceañera toast by asking if he’ll adopt her - leaving him crying tears of joy. Manuel and Gabriela Ortiz, who lives in Arizona, USA, met in 2016 when Gabriela’s daughter Rosa Vazquez had just turned 12. Rosa had never had a father figure in her life and was unable to form a close bond with the prior relationship her mom had been in before meeting Manuel. But something clicked with Manuel, who was a single father raising a daughter of his own, and their relationship was what Gabriela wished for Rosa with Manuel treating her like his own. When adoption had been discussed in the past, Rosa would get emotional and didn’t want to talk about it, though she doesn’t remember much of her biological father. So Manuel wanted to leave the decision up to Rosa and hoped when she was ready she would let the family know. On the day of her quinceañera, Manuel gave an emotional speech saying even though he wasn’t around when she was little, she’ll always be his baby and he loves her with all his heart. When he passed the mic to Rosa, both of them began getting emotional, and she thanked him for always being there for him when she feels like nobody else is. She also thanked him for being the father figure in her life, and revealed how she couldn’t imagine anyone else in his place before asking if he’ll adopt her. An emotional Manuel, after wiping away the tears, replies: ‘I’d be honored Rosa.’
