RICHTON PARK, Ill. — Video of the moment a woman surprises the man who raised her with adoption papers has been viewed millions of times on Facebook, and it’s not hard to see why.

The three-and-a-half-minute video was posted on Misty Nicole Knight’s Facebook page on March 5. The video has been viewed more than 25 million times, and it’s been shared more than 20,000 times.

As the video begins, Misty hands the man, Ryan Farrell, a gift with a letter on it. A portion of the letter says:

“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. 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.”

Ryan unwraps the box and finds a few routine gifts inside. Then, he gets to the real gift.
