Stepdaughter Asks Stepdad To Adopt Her On His Wedding Day

An emotional stepdad was brought to happy tears when his stepdaughter read out the exact number of days, hours, minutes and seconds he had been in her life, before asking him to adopt her at his wedding to her mom. Santino Novas, known as Tino, had no idea the surprise was coming when stepdaughter Kaydence Diaz, 15, got up to read out her heartfelt speech. Bracing herself to get the timing exactly right, Kaydence paused before reading, "Tino, I've only known you for 365 days, 18 hours, three minutes and 47 seconds" before adding, "but meeting you was one of the most incredible things that's ever happened [to me]." The 15-year-old then walked over to her stepfather with an envelope, which Tino started to open. As he looked at the paperwork, Tino immediately welled up when he saw that they were adoption papers. Kaydence then asked: "Dad, will you adopt me?"
