The little girl held up a sign that read, "Papi, You are my forever home. Will you adopt me?"

A young girl pulled off quite the surprise when she asked her stepdad to adopt her.

Leonardo Avila was blindfolded and guided to the mound of a baseball field when he opened his eyes, there was his 8-year-old stepdaughter holding a sign with a very important question.

"Papi, you are my forever home. Will you adopt me?"

Leonardo has been in his stepdaughter's life since she was eight months old.

He went on to marry her mom and said they've always had a close bond. Both agree this just feels good, but also normal.

"I'm just so thankful, so blessed to know I have an amazing little girl right here," said Avila.
