Stepdad Gives Heartfelt Speech To Stepdaughter Before Christmas Present Reveals Adoption Request

A stepdad started Christmas morning with the sweetest possible surprise, as he read aloud a note that then revealed he would like to adopt his fiancee's daughter. The moment proved too much for Riley Nahay, 15, who leaped across the couch to give Peter Kapushinsky, 41, a tearful hug. Peter has built up a bond with Riley since she was nine years old, when he started coaching Riley bowling after her father passed away in 2016. The pair bonded over the sport, and after two years of coaching, Riley's mom, Barbara, asked Peter out on a date. In the emotional video, posted on TikTok, Peter can be seen sitting on his sofa with Riley, with unwrapped Christmas gifts all around them. Pulling out a note, Peter wiped a tear away from his eye and started to read aloud all the things that, to him, make Riley special. Having reached the end of his speech, the 15 year old then pulled out her final present, which she unwrapped to reveal a number of sheets of paper. The first page simply read, "Petition for Adoption," and immediately knowing what his meant, a tearful Riley leapt across the sofa to give Peter a big hug in their Hazleton, Pennsylvania, home.
