Ten-Year-Old Boy Shares One Wish For His Birthday, Reads Step-dad Letter That Moves Him To Tears

When something is moving a little too slow to your liking, sometimes, you need to take it by the reins.

With his 10th birthday coming up, Kalani Watson had an unusual request. But it wasn’t the usual party with friends or new toy most kids would want on their special day.


As you can see, his stepdad, Brandon Williams, married his mom, Porsche, back in 2012.


And even before that, the two boys already shared the “traditional” father and son relationship. But Kalani wanted more than just having Williams as a stepdad. He wanted to take his last name as well.


His mother suggested that he share his desire with Williams during Father’s Day to make it more special. And explained that the whole legal process might take longer than he would want.

But Kalani couldn’t wait that long. So he decided that his birthday was the perfect time to “pop the question.”

“Dad, I know today is supposed to be all about me, but today is really about us. So let’s stop playing and make it official. Brandon Craig Williamson, will you do me the biggest favor in the world? Will you adopt me?”

After Kalani said his piece, he gave Williams a package – with a blank adoption form inside!

“Most parents automatically get their child’s love. I had to grind for this. I had to show him I’m not going anywhere,” Williams shared.


People on the internet have been calling the duo a “shining example to the world” about how a solid father-son relationship can positively impact each other’s lives. Kudos to Kalani and the rest of the Williams bunch!
