Viral WATCH: Mom Gives 20-Year-Old Letter to Adopted Daughter on Her Wedding Day
A Mississippi bride got an unforgettable gift on her wedding day — a 20-year-old letter from her adoptive mother.
Sherry Blackledge and her husband, who could not conceive children, adopted a son named Brian and a daughter named Brooke.
When Brooke was just 18 months old, Blackledge wrote her a letter, which she decided she would give to Brooke on her wedding day.
When the big day came more than 20 years later, Blackledge printed the letter of love on a piece of her own wedding gown and gave it to Brooke.
A video posted to YouTube shows the touching moment that Brooke received the letter from her mom. It read:
We just want you to know how very much love and happiness you have brought to us. You have made us a truly great family. A little precious baby girl to me and Daddy and a baby sister to Brian.
Before me and Daddy were married we always said we wanted a little boy and a little girl. When we were dating, we said if we had a little girl she would be a little Brooke. You are our little Baby Brooke.
Brooke, we just want you to know that you are very special to us and that God picked you extra special and he sent you to Mommy, Daddy and Brian.
“You’re special, and God sent you to us for us to love you,” Blackledge told a crying Brooke in the emotional video.
