Kacie Davis and her soon-to-be husband Jonathan met four years ago, but before they tied the knot, the devoted stepmother wanted to first propose to his daughter, according to Caters.
Sharing and Caring reports, as a stepparent, she has always shared a special bond with her spouse’s daughter and took steps to create a more formal family.
Kacie was ready to adopt Johnathan’s daughter, Brilee Davis, but it hadn’t been an option because of the girl’s biological mother.
She wrote in the post’s comments section, it’s been a hard-fought, five-year battle trying to adopt Brilee, and the struggle was very hard on the family.
But several months ago, the time had finally come for Kacie to legally accept Brilee as her own.
She wanted to share the intimate moment with her step daughter’s friends and her loved ones.
So someone recorded a video of Kacie asking Brilee to become her legal daughter, and a friend shared the video with Sharing is Caring. They posted the footage on Facebook and wrote:
A stepmom sternly calls her stepdaughter into the room – then suddenly something unexpected happens …
I burst into tears when I saw this.
In the video Kacie can be heard saying:
As you know today was big day. Things … did not go as expected.
So some things around here are going to have to be a little bit different.
She tells Brilee that her mom did not show up at court and her parental rights were terminated. Kacie then gets down on one knee and says to the young girl:
You have been like a daughter to me from the day that I met you. Now I want you to be not like a daughter anymore.
Will you be my real daughter?
Watch the heartwarming moment Kacie’s stepdaughter is brought to tears after hearing the adoption news:

According to Oklahoma legal services, a child’s biological parent must be ready to relinquish their parental rights before a stepparent can gain the same legal rights and responsibilities as the child’s biological parents.
Kacie gave Brilee a breast milk ring as a symbol of their love and mother-daughter bond.
