Illinois teen Lauren Hernandez wanted to give thanks to the man who, although not her biological father, raised her along with her mother since she was just a year old.

At her graduation party, she presented Joe Iosco with a gift-wrapped box. Inside, he found a framed poem, which read:

Some people would say you’re not my real dad, but I know this isn’t true
For you’ve been a real dad to me in all the things we’ve been through

Beneath the poem lay adoption papers – and when Joe spotted them, he fell to his knees with emotion. A video of the moment is going hugely viral on social media:

Speaking to Babble, Lauren said that Joe always made her feel “loved”.

He paid for school supplies, clothes, food… and he put a roof over my head. Joe and my mom have two daughters together, but he always makes sure I don’t feel left out.

Ah. Lovely.
