Here’s your daily dose of sweetness:
What do you get the stepfather who has everything? Adoption papers.
Gabriella Guardado, 22, is being adopted legally tomorrow after she gave adoption papers to David Lynde, 53, who married her mother about 12 years ago. Her biological father left when she was 8 and had previously refused to allow Lynde to adopt Guardado, the Daily Mail says.
This is the second one of these types of gifts we’ve seen in the last few weeks.
In Chicago, Lauren Hernandez asked Joe Losco to be her adoptive father during her high school graduation party in July.
