A teenager has captured the hearts of thousands after she surprised her stepfather with adoption papers on Christmas Day.
Julia Zharichenko, who now goes by Julia Moore, took to Facebook on Sunday to share a video of the heartwarming moment her stepfather John Moore realized she was asking him to legally become her dad.
‘Today I asked the man who took my biological fathers place for the past seven years to sign adoption papers so I can finally be officially his. I am now Julia Marie Moore,’ the 18-year-old from New Cumberland, Pennsylvania, wrote.

The clip begins with John sitting at the kitchen table opening a brown cardboard box from Barnes & Noble.
‘Alright. No wonder it takes her so long to wrap something,’ he says while removing tissue paper from the box.
