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.
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.
