This is the heartwarming moment a teenager reduces her step-dad to tears on his birthday with surprise adoption papers.

Sarah Leanord, 17, from Indiana, had been brought up by her step-dad, Vince VonTobel, 39, since she was two years old but he wasn't legally her father - until now.

Vince who has been in a relationship with Sarah's mum, Jessica, for 15 years, was left in floods on tears after Sarah showed him the adoption papers.

Thankfully the moment was captured on camera and now the video has been viewed over six thousand times online.

Sarah’s mum, Jessica said: “When my daughter Sarah approached me a few weeks before his last birthday and said she wanted to give him adoption papers for his birthday.

“I knew we had to make this happen."
