A 21-year-old Tiktok user known as Nicole Anderson moved people's hearts around the world when she posted a three-part series of heart-warming videos asking her stepdad Bradly Nicholson to legally adopt her as his daughter for Christmas last year.

Anderson has known her stepdad since she was just a year old and began calling him dad when she was 12 years old. She first told her mom Vicky Nicholson that she wanted her stepdad to legally adopt her for Christmas.

She then put together a scrapbook with all her favourite childhood memories with her stepdad so that he could look at them before making his decision.

The young woman decided to film her dad last year as he looked through the scrapbook, which ended in a special question for him.

She later posted the video this year showing her dad looking through the scrapbook packed with their memories.

The last page of the scrapbook contained the words, 'will you adopt me?'

Watch the videos above to see how it ended.
