Every girl needs a dad in her life. They are the ones who should teach them how to be self-sufficient, strong and independent, as how a man should truly treat them. But not every girl in the world gets to grow up with a dad. Still, there are some families out there that prove that a family is more than just blood.

Cami Lassiter was just four years old when her mom met Bobby Powell. Bobby fell in love with the little girl the moment he met her. So when mom Tori told her daughter that she and Bobby are getting married, the toddler asked the big, burly man ‘So does that mean you’re going to be my daddy?’. Bobby would have wanted nothing more that to adopt Cami as his own daughter, but the adoption process was too long, not to mention expensive.

Then came Christmas day 2017 and there were gifts under the tree in the Powell household. One by one, gifts were unwrapped, revealing stuff like beanies and mittens. When Cami’s turn came, she got a shallow box from the man she called dad these past seven years. Inside, a huge handmade Christmas card that read: “You may not have my eyes or smile, but from the first moment, you had my heart. Now, you have my last name.”

Bobby told Cami that they had already filed all the paperwork, meaning that she will be adopted by the very man that has raised her. Cue the waterfall of tears!
