“Well, good,” one daughter joked.

“I asked my step-dad to adopt me too! he had always wanted it but wanted it to be my choice!” someone said. The twins replied, “Congratulations! That’s exactly how our mom felt too, and it’s more special when the kid asks.”
“At that moment she knew all her work and love paid off,” a person wrote.
“I’m adopted and it is such a beautiful blessing! You’re amazing for stepping up for them and being the mom they needed,” another commented.
