Some Happy News For A Change!

Get ready, you're going to need some tissues for this one.

A nine-year-old Illinois girl had an important question for her stepfather but first wanted to send him on an adorable scavenger hunt first that ended with a heartwarming moment that's bringing everyone to tears.

Aeralyn was two-years-old when she met her mother's new boyfriend, Jacob Thrasher. Ever since then, Jacob has done everything he could to be like a real father to Aeralyn except for one thing ... and Aeralyn was about to take care of that.

With help from her mother, Jerica, Aeralyn set up a scavenger hunt that led Jacob all over town to pick up clues, which eventually sent him to the city courthouse where Aeralyn was waiting for him with a piece of paper in her hand.

As she fought through tears to read his final clue, Jacob gave her a big hug. Aeralyn said, "Thank you for being the dad you didn't have to be," and then asked him to adopt her.
