A mom gave her adopted daughter this tear-jerking note on her wedding day
When Sherry Blackledge and her husband couldn't get pregnant 20 years ago, they adopted a beautiful baby girl, Brooke. When Brooke was just 18 months old, Sherry decided to express the love she felt for her new daughter through a tear-jerking note that she would save until Brooke's wedding day.
Now, 20 years later, Sherry finally gave Brooke the letter that she had been saving all those years. The Internet is going crazy over the heartwarming and tear-jerking video (below).
The letter was written on a section of Sherry's own wedding dress. She kept it a secret for the entire 20 years. The couple's wedding videographer, The Film Poets, captured the moment when Sherry presented her daughter with the timeless and priceless gift.
Sherry and her husband adopted both Brooke and her brother when they were babies. In the video, Sherry reads part of the letter. She says:
"We just want you to know how much love and happiness you've brought to our family. 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."
