Tear-jerking moment US man surprises stepfather with adoption papers

This is the touching moment a US man surprises his stepfather with official adoption papers for Christmas.

The clip, captured at a home in Houston, Texas, shows Robert, 51, getting emotional after finding the adoption papers inside a gift bag given by his stepson Leeland.

''My step dad took me when I was 3 years old and raised me as his own and this surprise was the least I could do for him,’’ Leeland said.

''Feelings were mixed, it was very emotional, my mom was crying and a couple of minutes after, my dad started too.''

The clip was captured on December 25.
