Giving birth to a child makes a father but raising a child makes a “dad.”

Conyers, Georgia — For the last few weeks, a heartfelt viral video of 11-year-old Tyler Gause asking his middle-aged stepfather Don Gause to adopt him and embrace him as a son.

According to the DailyMail, Tyler’s family started recording and Don believed that someone was having a baby because he saw an “it’s a boy” bag.

The video captured Tyler’s emotional speech and Marcia Gause, his biological mother, helped her son with the situation.

“I asked Tyler about a year ago if he wanted to be adopted by Don and he was so excited he said yes with the biggest smile ever,” said Marica.

The 47-year-old stepfather did not have a clue what was going on behind, but when they surprised Don, he began to get teary eyed and emotional.

“Tyler was one and a half when Don came into his life, they have always had the relationship of father and son,” said Marica. 

Of course, right after Don accepted Tyler’s request.
