— A heartwarming video of a Maryland man's emotional reaction to a Father's Day gift from his stepdaughter is going viral.
According to the Press Association, Sophia Wilcox, 20, gave her stepfather, 46-year-old Brian Sandusky, a framed collage of uplifting notes that he had left on her bedroom door when she was younger.
"During middle school, my stepdad used to leave me a note on my door each day to inspire me," Wilcox captioned a clip of Sandusky tearfully accepting the gift Sunday. "Well, I kept those notes & it's been 6 years since then. Today I gave him those notes back."
