Girl Reveals T-Shirt Asking Stepdad To Adopt Her

A stepfather was brought to tears when his stepdaughter unzipped her sweater and revealed a t-shirt that asked if he would adopt her. Andie Griffiths, 29, had no idea about the surprise stepdaughter Brooke, aged seven, had in store for him, and began to well up as he realized what was unfolding. Brooke and her mom, Victoria Barker, 24, from Shrewsbury, UK, kept the surprise secret for around four weeks before the grand reveal. Only Brooke was entrusted with the secret because Vicki felt her and Andie's biological kids - Cory, aged five, Charlie, three, and Sapphire, one - might give away the surprise. On Father's Day, June 21, Andie was presented with a card by Brooke, and as he read it he saw “P.S. Look at me after reading the card” at the bottom. Once Andie saw the t-shirt he began to wipe his eyes before being moved to tears as Brooke approached him and gave him a comforting hug. Because of COVID restrictions, the family plan to complete the adoption process when normal life has resumed.
