WATCH: The Teary Moment a Girl Asks 'The Man Who Raised Her' to Adopt Her

A video has gone viral showing the touching moment a girl asks to be adopted.

Misty Knight from Illinois filmed the moment she presented her foster parent, Ryan Farrell, with a special gift.

“You’ve raised me my whole life, from putting my hair in tight Princess Leia buns, forging my signature in fifth grade, jamming out to alternative music, going on Warped Tour and even our first rock concert together, leading up to us laughing at cats wearing leggings," she wrote in a letter to Ryan.

“I know we are so weird together, but that’s what makes you you, and I cannot imagine not having you in my life. I’m so grateful to be able to call you dad."

When Ryan opens the box filled with gifts - including a Batman Vs Superman onesie - he is visibly moved when he gets to the adoption papers. 

"I've been wanting to do that for ages!" Ryan says before he hugs his daughter. 

Misty later posted the video to Facebook with the caption "Love you with all my heart and can't wait to be a FARRELL".

The clip was shared by Ellen Degeneres, and has since amassed over 33 million views!
