Turns out that the 12-year-old wrote a heartwarming poem reiterating Jeff’s importance in her life and how he has touched her heart in so many ways, over the years that they’ve been a family. The big surprise though unfolds towards the end of her poem where she asks him to formally adopt her, and become her dad! Now here’s where you’ll really need a tissue to wipe those tears—an emotional Jeff chokes up after reading his daughter’s poetry and at the idea of being asked to adopt her; he quickly agrees and gives Alexis a hug as they both cry in happiness!

With everyone on board with the idea of an adoption, we think it’s safe to say that this holiday season will be a very cherished and memorable one for this family!
