Daughter Gives Stepmom An Ornament, But She Doesn’t See The Hidden Message On The Back

It is never easy being a step-parent. Such relationships can be as contentious as they can be loving. Marissa Thamann, a 17-year-old from Ohio, proved the latter to be true.

Marissa recently revealed the touching footage of the precious gift she gave her stepmom, Heather Thamann. Filmed the day after Christmas, the clip shows Heather opening a box, then spotting a homemade ornament with a photo of her and Marissa.

When Heather turns the ornament around, she sees the message hidden on the backside. The question was concise and to the point: “Will you adopt me?”

Instantly, Heather broke down in tears. There is nothing quite as special as knowing that your child has chosen you as much as you have chosen them.

“The papers are already signed. You just have to sign them,” Marissa tells her crying mother in the video.

“I’ve been waiting for so long,” Heather replies.

“My stepmom has been there for me since I was 4 years old after losing my mom when I was only 3 months old,” Marissa wrote on Facebook.

There was also another very special letter written to Heather in the gift box.

“You may not have been there for my first breath, or the first time I walked or talked, but you were there when I lost my first tooth. When I learned how to ride a bike. When I started having feelings for boys. When I was becoming a woman… Thank you for being the mom I needed. Thank you for overcoming everything that has been thrown at you. I love you.”
